36 Year Old Video of Gladstone to Cape York Antique Car Rally Recovered

In 1979, twelve drivers from the Gladstone Vintage and Classic Carriage Club took their cars, all built between 1920 - 30, in a bid to show that their cars may be old, but they could still withstand unpaved, rugged road trip to Cape York.
At the time, many sections of the 2,000 km trip were dirt and rock roads only recommended for four wheel drives. Andre Robinson recovered and remastered the video. His grandparents, Fran and Andre Dor, drove the entire Gladstone to Cape York trip in a 1928 Dodge, the only car to complete the whole journey.
