The Trips

One of the many trips

This is where you can find information about the trips taken by these adventurous travelers.  From 1934 forward they made 8 summer vacation trips, the last being in 1942.   The Silver Streak and Darlene made all 8 trips.  Some of the trips are chronicled in much more detail than others.  Here you will find information and pictures related to these trips, such as the picture above received from The Henry Ford Archives.  It shows Henry Ford himself with the 1938 Gypsy Coeds and the Silver Streak in Dearborn Michigan.  There are pictures from key destinations and some from the towns and cities past thru along the way.  There are at this time no pictures from the 1934 trip and only 1 from the 1942 trip though we have not given up the search!
