Well, the final preparations are done and the 2014 World Auto Tour is about to depart. With the help of MIR Corp, the tour organizers, Russian and Chinese Visa applications have been completed, the Carnet for Japan is done and the shipping container for Japan is arranged. The cars have to be at the Port of Oakland April 4th for loading into the container and will ship for Yokohama April 11th. The actual shipping time to Yokohama is approximately 12 days. Our flight leaves San Francisco May 7th and arrives in Tokyo the evening of May 8th. May 9th will be spent getting the cars out of Customs.
I can’t believe it’s almost time to depart on a World Tour that has been two years in the making….the time has really gone fast. A special thanks to Sotheby’s for all their hard work in helping us pull this together…..
The 28 Plymouth is as ready as it ever will be. Luke and I just finished a couple last minute things….installed new king pins and bushing and a commercial grade fuel filter setup (see pic) with a water separator to deal with poor fuel situations. Spare parts and tools have been packed away, so we should be good to go!
