    Thanks, Sara. The closer you get to these Duesenbergs and the more you focus on the smaller details, it really comes home that these cars are truly marvels of mechanical works of art.

    I was going to type "This is a doozy of a thread" but I just learned that the origin of the phrase is a bit older than the cars. Nevertheless... Yes, absolute works of art. I'd love to see any of these close-up.

    Thanks for the visit, David. Even many car folks don't know that the Duesenberg brothers got their start producing race cars before they moved on to luxury autos. Those two guys possessed a degree of mechanical engineering, along with their sense of styling, that truly set them apart from any competition. I have some shots of their early race cars that I'll post soon.
