If you enjoy seeing great old classic cars, you must visit Auburn Indiana. That is where you will find the Aubrun/Cord/Duesenburg auto museum. Its the greatest collection of classics we have ever seen, and it is located in the very factory where these cars were made. When people saw a Duesenburg roll by, they often said "Its a Duesey!"
"a real original"
Several older men, including this kind gentleman, will answer your questions and help in any way that they can. But the most amazing thing is this: As a teenager, this man worked on the assembly line in this factory, and in fact he helped assemble the actual car that is displayed behind him!
This is called a "boattail" design for obvious reasons.
