Cord, Auburn, Duesenberg Museum

Auburn, Indiana is the home of the original Cord automobile factory which produced Cords, Auburns and Duesenbergs. It is currently the museum for the cars of the same name and is is a great Art Deco building. I feel it is appropriate to depict the buildings in black and white as it speaks to vintage nature of the building. The cars are portrayed in glorious color. The paintwork and chrome of the cars of the era was superb. The factory had a standard color list but for #25 you could get any color you wished.

Classic Cars

The OLLI at Furman Classic Cars class  visited Classic Cars,  a combination restorable cars/.junkyard. I visited it a few times in the past and here is the first installment of my current visit.

Things like doors of different colors and rusting parts are always eye catching.

Benson’s Yet Again

I think there will probably be several more images from the trip Down Memory Lane because the collection is so beautiful and completely captures the era of many of our childhoods and teen years. Ago the walk down the Lane.
