Well, things have moved along a bit since last time I posted.  Have myself Pagodafest tickets, two return air tickets with Qantas, and am in the process of preparing the car for the trip.

Tom Collit has agreed to act for me to receive the car and to get a few bits I may need to carry for the long drive around the USA for a few months.
Baron BobYoungman has kindly offered to lend me a Petrol Pump to carry just in case of any problem.  I am not allowed to ship things in the car.

Shipping is all ready arranged and just need to make one phone call and drop the car off for its container voyage to Los Angeles.

Insurance looks to be good with Hagertys although I have to sort out my licence and will probably need to get an international one to satisfy them.

By the end of April it will all be ready to start the journey of Bella to Pagodafest 2019.
Yoohooo. Looking forward to the trip and catching up with old friends along the way.

Garry,

Sounds like an amazing trip.   Will let you know if I am in Los Angeles when you first arrive - as I might need to be there for business - and we can connect.   Will send you my contact.

About your INSURANCE - you mention Hemmels?   Really?   The company in the UK that restores mercedes etc?
