AUSTRALIA WANTS CARS.
The New York Times
January 12, 1913
Road Conditions Reported Good and Antipodal Market Is Growing.
Australia is forging ahead as one of the leading markets for American car export, and reflects the attitude of European and other Old World countries on the motor situation. In the last year one Indianapolis concern has shipped carload after carload to its Australian representatives, and already a number of orders have been received for deliveries in January, February and March. The Australian representatives in question handle the business of the entire Continent, sometimes covering 3,000 miles in trips to their various branch houses.
A member of the firm recently returned from a tour through Victoria, Tasmania, and New Zealand, in which he covered nearly 5,000 miles. He reports road conditions nearly ideal, and predicts an influx of tourists from America and Europe as soon as the possibilities of the country become generally known.
