30's Model A Ford crossing the US in record time recreating 110 YO journey

The Vintage Adventurer, two guys trying to beat the clock driving a 1939 Model A Ford across the the US, is all over! The crankshaft broke just past Amarillo at about 22.30 GMT Wednesday (Oct. 16th.). Both Rod Wade and co driver / mechanic Michael Flanders are devastated. The car is at a storage yard in Amarillo and the guys got a hire car and are heading for LA.

The Vintage Adventurers left New York on Monday on new world record attempt for driving 1930 Ford Model A against the clock to California. Rod and Michael were paying homage to H. Nelson Jackson and Sewall K. Crocker, the first to drive coast-to-coast across America 110 years ago. They started the record attempt on today Columbus Day (October 14th) at  Staten Island, NY.
