Back in 1940, my parents took a cruise ship from New York , through the Panama Canal, ending in San Francisco.
It had been arranged that my buddy and I would drive our family car, a 1940 De Soto, from Wash. D.C. ( where we lived) to California to meet up with them, and continue on by car to tour Canada.
Altogether, that was one fantastic vacation.
