Thanks for the article/post Tipsy. I have always loved Duesenbergs and their massive styling and a big fan of the Lycoming engine. They engines were made just down the river from here in Williamsport.

if you can,try to make it labor day weekend for the festival.
these people love to drive their cars, (as far away as OR)
and show off!

the guy with the 29 LeBaron Phaeton (part II) let me climb in the back!!!!!
(after getting to know him,what a car!)

had to laugh at myself, when i first got to the museum, i took the time to hide the XM radio
and GPS, close the sun roof, lock the doors, and so forth on the Aurora.
then came out and a 1/4 million dolllar boat tail auburn is parked next to me with the top down, bags in the back. without a care in the world...................

Nice lol. Yeah it would all depend on when I go through that area. I only go through on my way to visit family in Virginia. But I'll definitely keep that in mind, .
