Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum Presents Special Car-Side Presentation

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is excited to announce a new monthly program, “If These Cars Could Talk.” Visitors will have the opportunity to meet one automobile from the Museum’s collection and get to know it a little more in-depth with a live car-side presentation.

“Visitors will be treated to a special glimpse into what makes the 1929 Cord L-29 Chassis such a revolutionary build,” said Sam Grate, registrar of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. The Cord L-29 is the first successful production front-wheel drive car in America.

The exhibit also includes a new touchscreen which highlights various parts of the chassis. “Not only can you select a component of the chassis with the touchscreen, it also lights up on the chassis itself, allowing you to locate the component,” continued Grate.

Presentations will take place at 11:00 am and 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 13th, 2015.

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum now offers free admission to DeKalb County residents on the second Sunday of every month. Gather your family and visit the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum on Sunday, June 14, 2015 from 10 am to 5 pm. This is a great time to come spend Flag Day recognizing the local historical contribution to our country’s empowering product – the automobile.
