If Cars Could Talk â€“ Early Duesenberg: The Little Engine that Could & Other Innovations
February 2, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
There are many chapters to the story of the automobile. If cars could talk, they might just share stories we never imagined. Each month, our speaker will pick a car and offer a fascinating peek into its history. Join us the first Tuesday of each month, and explore the story of cars with Museum curators, staff, or local personalities over lunch.
Many people, if they’ve heard of Duesenberg, think of the fast and flashy cars owned by the rich and famous in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Before that, however, the Duesenberg brothers had a long history of design and development of high performance engines and vehicles used with considerable success on early race tracks, including multiple wins at Indianapolis 500. Guest speaker Greg Camp will explore this innovative period for the Duesenberg brothers before the famous J and SJ models.
Free, with admission. Bring your own lunch or enjoy a meal from Classics by Pacific Grill at ACM.
