Did you know there will be a world record challenge on Monday?

Australian motoring enthusiast Rod Wade, aka the Vintage Adventurer, is preparing to set a new world record in the Ocean to Ocean Driving Challenge as he drives his 1930 Ford Model A, against the clock from New York to California.   The journey begins on Columbus Day (October 14th) when Rod fills a bottle with water from the Atlantic Ocean, just off Staten Island.     A mere 60 hours later the water will be poured into the Pacific Ocean when the team arrives at Venice Beach, Los Angeles.  That’s when the clock will stop and a new world record will be set.

Evans waterless coolant will once again be the coolant choice for the Vintage Adventurer’s next world record attempt.


Rod and co-driver Michael Flanders will travel the 2,947 mile trip in under 60 hours, and they will do it with no water in the cooling system.  Water will be on board to hydrate Rod and Michael, but not a drop in the engine. This past June, the car completed the Peking to Paris Rally, considered to be the world’s greatest motoring challenge.  s of performing under extreme conditions.

The Ford Model A will be on display on the Snyder’s Antique Auto Parts stand at the Antique Automobile Club of America’s Hershey Classic Car Show (Oct. 9-12 at Hershey, PA), prior to setting off on this record-breaking adventure.   The “Ocean 2 Ocean Challenge – America” will raise much needed money for the American Kidney Fund.
