An Old Dog for a Hard Road
By Bill Tuckey & Thomas B. Floyd

The inside story of the 1979 Repco Round-Australia Reliability Trial

The 12th round-Australia motoring event run since the first (1953) Redex, the 1979 Repco is now acknowledged as the toughest long-distance rally since the continent-to-continent epics of the first decade of the 20th century.

While it ran, and for a short time afterwards, there were many stories written about what was supposed to have happened, what did happen, and what may have happened, but never did. This book was planned long before the event in the knowledge that all the power of the daily media could never do justice to all the stories that would emerge. It is - as it was planned - a faithful record not only of the men and women who competed, but of the others who were essential bit-players in the extraordinary drama.

In this book are the tall tales, the lies, the wondrous happenings, the incredibilities, the extraordinary moments, the unbelievable, the remarkable, and the heroic. And they are all true...
