Our good friends Guy Butcher and Eunice Kratky in the UK have driven their 1933 Austin 7 from Baltimore, to Alaska, to Tierra Del Fuego, Argentina, and Guy is now writing a book about that incredible journey.

He would dearly love to acquire a copy of the book "Adventure South" about a similar epic journey undertaken in 1941 by three fellows in a 1941 Plymouth.

There was much information and photos about this "Richardson Pan-American Highway Expedition" published in the Plymouth Bulletin in 1982, but a copy of the book itself has proved elusive thus faró can anybody help?

Read more about the Richardson Expedition here (its quite a story!):

Chris, would I be correct in assuming they have read this?

That book was part of the inspiration for Anja's and my decision to ship the Austin Ten to the US when we moved here and to drive 6,500 (roundabout) miles from New York to St. Louis (via North Carolina and Nova Scotia).
