Dillinger's Terraplane At ACD
The Hemmings blog noted that the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana currently has John Dillinger's 1933 Essex Terraplane on display. I have visited the ACD Museum several times, and it is one of my all time favorite museums. Housed in the gorgeous Art Deco headquarters and showroom of the original Auburn Automobile Company, the ACD is a wonderful exhibition of not only those iconic marques, but also many other vintage automobiles, with one area set aside for cars made in Indiana. Dillinger's Essex Terraplane was a high performance vehicle for its time, powered by a Hudson straight eight.
