Description

From the very beginnings of the automobile industry, manufacturers had to prove the mettle of their products in order to stand out from the multitude of rival companies. One of the best means to accomplish this was by winning races and establishing high-speed endurance records. No one pursued this concept more aggressively than those merchants of speed, E. L. Cord and the Duesenberg brothers, Fred and Augie.

Ride along with some of the era's most talented and daring drivers as they put Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs through their paces. The extensive archival collection of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum brings us spectacular photographs of these three marques as they gain laurels in the crucible of competition. Informative captions tell the story of the dauntless efforts of men and machines as they raise the bar of automotive engineering during the formative days of the American automobile.
