Motor Service Provider, Charlie Heard, was enaged to carry three ladies on a daring outback adventure in 1930. He drove them in his Hudson taxi from Lorne in Victoria, up through the red centre to Darwin, and back down to Victoria via Brisbane and Sydney. A real outback adventure before made roads existed outside the main cities. Charlie's grandchildre re-created the trip 78 years later in a 1928 Essex.
