    They actually came to my High School in Albuquerque when I was there (60's).... fantastic presentation. Incredible models and designs. During an assembly for boys only.
    Were promoting us to sign up to compete.

    A Friend's father had entered when he was a in HS.... in those days (30's?), they did not design cars, but built carriages like the Fisher Body logo....It was an incredible model. In a lit case in his den.

    Interesting (and creative) attempt to 'recall' the Duesenburg style, but still makes me think "clown-shoe"...... Something about the overall 'heft' of the thing, and the wheels don't help......clunky comes to mind. A bit scary to think of how much this cost the client; hope he was happy! All too often, these attempts at replicating classic designs come up woefully lacking. Same thing happens whether US or European shapes; the replicants seldom (never?) achieve the style or grace of the originals. Can anyone think of a replica that surpasses the original? At the moment, I can't ......o_O

    It's amazing, but looking back on that era and those cars...........all that just to transport two. Those days are long gone boys.
