Classic Auburns, Cords, Duesenbergs making stops around Indiana to promote festival


AUBURN, Indiana — Dozens of classic car owners are driving around Indiana to promote the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival near Fort Wayne this weekend.

The Journal Gazette reports ( ) the owners of the Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs stopped Tuesday at the General Motors Assembly plant in Fort Wayne. They also planned stops in Kokomo and Peru before heading to the festival site in Auburn on Thursday.

Al Light of Williamsport, Pennsylvania, says he's not nervous driving his 1936 Cord 810 Phaeton on long highway trips. He says there's no sense owning it if you can't enjoy it.

The festival promotes automobile heritage. The event includes a parade of cars Saturday.
