It was awesome. I recommend going if it is possible. It was a really nice museum. Give yourself a whole day because their is a second museum behind it which we did not have time for.
The tour starts off in the original showroom with show quality cars. When you first walk in there is an 8 cylinder Cord front and center, the 2 Duesenberg model J’s seen above, and 2 Auburn Roadsters.
Cord 8 cylinder
Auburn 6 cylinder display engine. All Auburn and Cord engines were built by Lycoming. I am not sure if the all Duesenberg Engines were built by Lycoming, but the famous over head cam inline 8 engines were modified Lycoming enignes.
Cord 812 Supercharged Coupe custom
1926 Auburn 6-68 Roadster
Auburn 6 cylinder Wanderer. The 6 cylinder Auburns have absolutlely beautiful proportions. This rare Wanderer one of only 3 known to be remaining was one of my favorites.
This Cord 810 has over 115,000 miles. The owner used it to travel much of the world.
Me in a 1920’s Dodge.
Here is a nice shot of the controls. The left pedal felt like the clutch and the right felt like the brakes. As for the throttle and the ignition timing I am not sure which of the 2 steering wheel levers was which.
This original Dodge logo led me to check if they were Jewish. They were not Jewish.
