Born out of the crucible of racing, Duesenbergs were built for speed, and many survivors will speed again this year at the Duesenberg Thunder Run and Vintage Fly-in at the Goshen Air Center in Goshen, Ind. The new event will be held Sept. 6 as part of the annual Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Club Reunion and the ACD Festival, both in Auburn, Ind., during Labor Day Weekend.
Racing Duesenbergs is not a first for the ACD Club. Five years ago, in 2010, the club held the Ab Jenkins Duesenberg Exhibition of Speed, and an astounding 75 Duesenbergs were reportedly at the event — dozens more than had appeared at club reunions immediately preceding the 2010 event. Of those 75 gleaming Duesenbergs at the 2010 Exhibition of Speed, 40 sped down the runway sidemount-to-sidemount at the airport in Kendallville, Ind.
This year, organizers are welcoming vintage aircraft as well, with a B-17 bomber and Ford Tri-Motor already committed to the event. A 350-mph Jet Truck will also participate.
The ACD Club Reunion is a nearly week-long affair. The Hoosier Tour travels throughout Indiana from Sept. 1-3, ending at the ACD Automobile Museum in Auburn, Ind., at noon on Sept. 3. Other club events are focused around the museum with club judging, tech talks and a Sept. 4 swap meet for club members. On Sept. 5, cars leave Eckhart Park to form the ACD Festival Parade of Classics, ending in the Auburn town square for a car show.
The Sept. 6 Thunder Run wraps up the weekend of Classics. Learn more at www.2015thunderrun.com.
