"Aloha pictured here in front of a Model T was the first woman to circle the globe in an automobile.

The Wanderwell Expedition, an incredible story from the 1920’s. This adventure epitomizes the durability of the Model T Ford and demonstrates the bravery of a pair of adventurers who helped forge the early days of romantic motorized exploration.

Captain Walter Wanderwell, an adventurer, inventor and former sailor with an itch for world travel, conceived the notion of circling the globe by automobile."
