Take a ride in a historic Cord Duesenberg this Father’s Day

AUBURN, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) – For the first time ever, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is giving motorheads the chance to take a ride in a historic Auburn or Cord vehicle on Father’s Day.

Museum officials are calling it the “Father’s Day Classic Car Cruise,” and it’s set for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at their Auburn location.

Participants will be able to choose a ride in a 1931 Auburn 8-98 sedan, 1932 Auburn 8-100 cabriolet, 1935 Auburn 653 sedan, 1935 Auburn 851 sedan, or 1936 Cord 810 Beverly sedan for a suggested $10 donation to the museum.

Rides start at the Education & Exhibit Plaza and will drop passengers off at the front doors of the museum after the ride.

You don’t have to register ahead of time, and riders are on a first come, first serve basis.

The museum, located in the original 1930s national headquarters of the legendary Auburn Automobile Company and a National Historic Landmark, is home to more than 120 classic, antique, vintage and special interest cars on three exhibit floors.
