The fiercest struggle pits Henry Ford opposed to Frederic Smith of Olds. Olds was once the early winner within the race for dominance, yet now the Olds empire is in hassle, its once-industry top industry percentage shrinking, its funds dwindling. Ford is simply revving up. yet this can be Ford's 3rd try at a winning vehicle company—and if this one fails, fairly probably his final. So Smith fights Ford with the guns he is familiar with top: attorneys, blackmail, intimidation, and a vicious ads smear crusade that finally backfires.
Increasingly determined, wanting fabulous PR that may support trap consumers to his showrooms, Smith levels the main outrageous stunt of the period: the 1st motor vehicle race around the continental usa, with of his Olds automobiles.
