Since the functionality was not built into Mathematica until 3.0, I
doubt you will find any good 2.2 or earlier examples.  

In any case, the third edition of The Mathematica Book shows an example
of a solution of the Sine-Gordon equation by NDSolve on p894. The
advection equataion can similrly be solved by NDSolve.
