he does of course mean "Four wheel Drive with a Wisconsin engine". Wisconsin - "brass frame" - easy mistake to make - if you are totally clueless.

Looks like some of the slow ones (FWD and Half track) did some of the journey on trailers. By Steves quick estimate the fuel cost for the FWD to do the whole journey would have been about £3,000. Expensive road trip.
