The Hupmobile World’s Tour
“After having covered close to 4,000 miles of United States soil and having completed the first and worst lap of its 40,000-mile journey, the Hupmobile world touring car and its crew sailed from San Francisco, December 13, for Honolulu.
“. . . Thirty-five days after leaving Detroit the car pulled triumphantly into Los Angeles at the head of long escorting procession. It was received with acclaim in the sunny California metropolis and efforts were made to persuade the tourists to stay over the automobile show this week.
“To delay sailing from ‘Frisco, however, would have meant a long wait for another boat, so the tourists hurried on to the Golden Gate city, loaded their sturdy car aboard the Manchuria and headed across the Pacific according to schedule.”
– Michigan Manufacturer & Financial Record, Volume 6, Issue 11, January 14, 1910
