Last time I saw that car was at a car show in Indianapolis, in 1964. I remembered it being green at the time. Maybe not.

I recently purchased a copy of the July 1951 Motorsport Magazine, containing an article about the Sterkin Duesy Hot Rod. Scanned in here for your veiwing pleasure:

Interesting reading. You gotta hand it to the guy for having the guts to be different.

I remember that car from my youth. I saw it on several occasions in the early 1950's. It had multiple carbs as described in the article, but in the magazine photo its only got a single carb. My dad had a casual friendship with Sterkin and tried unsuccessfully to buy the car just to get the engine, but Sterkin did sell some parts to him.

I had no idea that Sterkin had driven the car at El Mirage. Pretty impressive to say the least.

Is this the machine now referred to as "Geronimo" ?? which has I believe put in an appearance at the ACD Club Reunion a time or two. Duesenberg
cognoscente please enlighten us. Also, what is the J number of the engine on this vehicle, and of Geronimo if they are different vehicles. Thanks , Richards in Iowa
P.S.- The body of the vehicle shown in the Motorsport article appears to be
a Model A Ford body rather than a 1934 Ford. What is the true story on this
rig? jr
