Kennedy’s actual car

We left Wilkes-Barre, PA and were supposed to go as far as Youngstown, OH but we got there earlier than anticipated and decided to go all the way to Ann Arbor on the 20th. It was a long drive but we were glad that we would be staying two nights in one place.

During the day on the 21st we went to the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, MI. While it’s a lot about transportation, it’s got a lot of other stuff in it too. It is huge! We didn’t get to see it all but concentrated on the cars, trucks, trains, wagons, bicycles, motorcycles, clocks, car related things like motels, highways and gas stations and a display highlighting the struggle for equality in the United States.

One of the first things we saw were the limousines of Presidents including this one, the actual car that John F. Kennedy was riding in when he was assassinated.
