Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum Semi-Annual Newsletter, The Accelerator, Wins Prestigious Golden Quill Award!

For many years, the annual Golden Quill Award presented by Old Cars Weekly News & Marketplace has brought recognition to numerous publications in the old car hobby, and continues to be a source of pride for winners. Submitted publications are judged for accuracy, style and presentation; along with quality of human interest, technical, historical, event and advertising content writing.

“It is important that club publications show growth,” adds Angelo Van Bogart, editor, Old Cars Weekly. “The advances in printing have made quality graphics and color renditions very affordable. Story selection and content is another factor that needs attention, since competition between club publications seems to become stiffer each year. Congratulations to the winners.”

Originally published by the Auburn Automobile Company, The Accelerator was a publication sent to Auburn dealers and distributors. Published monthly and sometimes quarterly from 1926 through 1935, The Accelerator contained useful information about sales, exports, racing competition, and people associated with the company.

When the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum was established in 1974, The Accelerator carried on its original mission adding news, commentary and historical content celebrating Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg marques – a continuous publication of distinction. The Museum members receive the publication semi-annually, one of the many perks of participating in the various Museum Member levels.
