• Short Summary

    Point to this story is that many of the vehicle competing are considerably older than the towns they went through, not to mention the roads they travelled on. (Development of the Copperbelt didn't start until the early '30s.) Mystery surrounds how the vehicles got her in the first place, if, as seems likely, they were brought here about the time of their manufacture.
