Motoring Across the Pond

On this day in 1936, the Junior Car Club of Great Britain departed for the United States aboard the RMS Queen Mary. Its 85 members would drive 35 cars--including Rolls Royces, Bentleys, Humbers, Wolselys, Talbots, and English-built Ford V8s--1,500 miles across America and Canada, in a rally that would end up in Montreal. The itinerary included prolonged stops in New York, Washington, D.C., and Detroit, where they would be guests of Henry Ford.
