    Strange journey...

    I knew about that car before but that is an excellent article on it.

    Where I went to University in Indiana we were about 20 miles north of Auburn Indiana---the home of Cord, Auburn, and Duesenberg---which contains a wonderful museum at the former headquarters and factory. Each summer (and I was going to school year round the last two years) they would hold a reunion at the museum. Cars came literally from all over the world with a big parade on Saturday (as I recall)---it was marvelous

    Oh, man - the Cord is one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen.

    Nice find, Ben.
