Two former dry lake racers, Danny Eames and Phil Remington, were charged with Ford's advertising campaign of driving a '58 prototype around the world in 80 days to coincide with Mike Todd's movie of the same name.

The animals proved skittish and were difficult to pass along the country's version of a road. The trip took 119 days to complete in 1957.
