Last Thursday morning we loaded the Model T and the Landrover in the drizzly rain in the harbour of Amsterdam.

The sinister environment of the harbour in Amsterdam at 6 AM

The days before we have cleaned the cars thoroughly, otherwise they can not enter New Zealand.

good travel

At the end of January next year they arrive in Christchurch on the southern island of New Zealand.
There we pick up the cars and then start our journey through New Zealand, with Steef and Greetje Reilingh as a team in the Landrover.

Overhauling the engine

After the 50,000 miles of our Worldtour till now we have had a lot of trouble with the bearings of the crankshaft and connection rods.
That’s why we decided to change the bearings in changeable caps.
We drilled the Model A crank for the oiling of the connection rods.
The oilpump is of a VW beatle, driven by the camshaft.
