Duesenbergs are great tour cars!  They drive like trucks!!!!!!!  153 inch wheelbase of pure MONEY.  Last engine block that sold went in Auburn for $32,000.  Last original frame was sold by George Albright for $62,000.  Good news is that they have recast many of the small parts in bronze, so that the restoration of the old broken alloy pieces can be done.  Engine rods require replacement due to the fact that the original ones blow apart under pressure.  But, what an automobile!!!!!!!!!

Well the glider looks a little worse for wear, but the hot rods look good.

IIRC, there is a story about this incident in Alex Xidias book. Think it was El-Mirage??

That's kind of a cool photo, I don't think they flew the F-84's very long.
