My son has just finished editing and posting on youtube the highlights of a 500 mile 4 day tour we did over the Easter break. 7 Model T's and a Vintage Dodge completed the trip without a single breakdown on what was one of the most challenging and difficult drives I have ever done in a T. The main focus of the trip was to travel to the the famous McKillops bridge which is one of only 2 road bridges that cross the Snowy River. We camped out each night so each T was fully loaded with all supplies for 4 days of camping. Here is the youtube link. I hope you enjoy the spectacular film of the Victorian high Country. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUD1MrExJoc

Wonderful trip, Warwick, and very brave to do the steepest part downhill. I have done it on three separate occasions- once up and down in the dark to fight a bushfire, but I wasn't driving for that excursion. Next was a few months later in 1965 in my 1939 Series E Morris, and more recently taking my wife on the trip in our 1959 Rover 90 in 2009.

Here is the Ambyne Bridge in 1965-



McKillops Bridge the same year-

That was great, thank you for sharing. Wish I could have done that when I was over there last year.

Oh my gosh. Fantastic video and I'm only at the 13 minute mark. Beautiful...
But those ledges and on a dirt road. I just couldn't, without fully pooping my pants.
And in a model T.
Not a flat-lander but uff-da.
Back to it.
Oh no. A wood decked bridge. I hate bridges.
You guys rip (go fast!) on your tours.
Fantastic video!
Wow.
Beautiful yet troubled me to no end. :-)

Music was great!
Tom Cochrane (Life Is A Highway) is also Red Rider (Lunatic Fringe)...
That's not what I'm saying tho. But I think it... :-) :-)

Thank you much!
