Mike ~~~????
Sorry~I must be missing your point ?

Mike and his bride drive their Auburn speedster and their L29 all over the country. And they often provide us a wonderful account of their adventures...

If you know Gary Hiller's speedster, you would think it is real. It is one of the Glen Pray cars with original Auburn chassis, wheels, engine, drivetrain. The color is cigarette cream. The only non original Auburn part is the body from the firewall back. Unless you had a magnet, 99% of the world would think it is the real thing.

Dick Boeshore was an active club member with several Duesenbergs in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. I met him at the Eastern Spring meet last year. He came by Avon, PA, where the original ACD meets were held to visit. Dick is still a member, but no longer has any cars. he had some great stories to share with all of us at the meet. Dick and Bob McEwan knew each other, and were both at the original meet. Seems like Dick had serveral (I think he said 7) Duesenbergs over the years. fascinating person and it was great to talk to him.

Because we are talking about Auburns here does anyone know what happened to a 35 or 36 speedster that was owned by Sherm Hall of alahambr Ca. This car did not have the original engine or trans but it had the 2 speed rear end. It was sold by Sherm in around 1965 where it sat on Mission Rd in Los Anglese Ca at the Shasta Mission Beverage bottleing company that Sherm owned. Sherm and my father were best of friends till they died and bought many old cars and stored them in the extra building there. I recall Sherm selling the car because of some burns he got while under it heating up some front end damaged and some undercoating caught fire.. He went to wipe off the flaming goo only to have it stick to his hand... Big mistakes we make sometimes. I'm just wondering if its restored or crushed. Thanks for any information on this.. Its something on my bucket list...

Bayard Badenhausen, who has published collecting memoirs in the Classic Car Club bulletin, would probably know the car, as he lived in Philadelphia.

Back in 1965, I made a trip to Pennsylvania to purchase a 1929 Marmon coupe. Having no luck finding the owner, I ventured on over to the northeast corner of Pennsylvania to look for Milford 'Tiny' Gould. I had seen his ads in Hemmings' Motor News listing several desirable cars. When I arrived at his shop, there were various models of different cars parked on his lot. What caught my eye was a 1933 Packard Series 1001 Coupe/Roadster Standard Eight. It was painted in gray primer and had a very ragged top. Interior leather was original and in good condition. He was asking $1800.00 but I didn't think it was worth that much!! That was a lot of money! I offered him $1500.oo but he turned it down. After returning home, I could just vizilize that car all repainted and new top and everything re-chromed! In a couple of days, I called him back and told him that I would purchase the Packard and would send him a certified check for $1800.00 and would pick it up in about thirty days. After getting the car home, it was repainted in Packard Blue, everything was rechromed, new white convertible top installed and six matching whitewall tires installed. I kept the car and drove it all over Indiana and down into Kentucky. Went on a few CCCA Classic Car caravans also. In the mid-nineteen eighties, I sold the car to fellow in Louisville, Ky. and I think that he still owns the car.
I am now ninety years old and I still love the body styles and lines of those great cars!!
