Hello Everyone, this is John…..It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, so thought I’d bring you up to speed on what’s going on in the World Auto Tour World.

I’ve been working on the Roadster the last couple weeks getting ready for another road trip. I’ve installed new plugs, wire’s, dist cap, rotor, tightened all the nuts and bolts and most importantly mounted new new steel belted radial tires. I had been using the old school bias tires and what a difference the new radials made…much better ride and overall handling !!! Should have done this sooner.

Leo contacted me a while back, wanting to take his Model A Roadster Pickup on an adventure, so we are doing a 2500 mile Great Lakes trip around the shoreline of Lake Huron, Lake Superior and Lake Michigan which includes both the US and Canada. Luke was planning to go as well, however, due to other commitments he won’t be able to make it. I’ll be leaving California in the Roadster next week heading for Toledo, Ohio where I’ll meet Leo and hit the road!!! Not quite the adventure of the World Tour but will still be a great time… year will be a much bigger adventure, more on that later!!!!!

So….stay tuned…I’ll be posting the blow by blow details once we get started.


“Old Cars Weekly” Article…..Part 2





“Old Cars Weekly” has just published Part #2 of the two segment article they wrote on the “World Auto Tour 2014”. Part 1 published in it’s last issue covered Leg #1 of the world tour (San Francisco to Paris); Part 2 covers Leg #2 (Paris to Iceland) and Leg #3 covered ¬†America (Plymouth, Ma to San Francisco via the Yellowstone Trail). Once again Angelo, editor of “Old Cars Weekly”, did a great job on the article….check it out on

I also just finished a four part video interview discussing some of the tour challenges and highlights….I’ll have more info on that once it’s been edited and online.

Hope everyone has a GREAT holiday season…..
