7,180 Miles in reverse

Speaking of "37 miles in reverse", my wife, Grace dug this up..

Cross-country trips were no longer considered big news in 1930, but Charles Creighton and James Hargis' unique journey managed to make headlines. The two men from Maplewood, New Jersey, arrived back in New York City on this day, having completed a 42-day round trip to Los Angeles - driving their 1929 Ford Model A the entire 7,180 miles in reverse gear.
