Hello,

ten Duesenberg cars of Mr. William Lyon are on display at the John Wayne Airport, LA.

Until 24th of July there are Duesies like the Weymann Tapertail J Speedster, the Guerney Nutting (Maharaja) SJ Speedster and the first serial Model J (J-101) on display.

If you like to see these one-of-a-kind duesies (I guess) you should take the opportunity, who knows where these cars would be in a year...

Recognize these guys? I took this photo of General Bill Lyon, his son, and Randy Ema at Pebble Beach in 2007.

Hi Steve,

I wish I could go there, too. I admire the design of the Weymann Tapertail Speedster and the Gurney Nutting SJ Speedster as well. If you like take some photos and post them at the forum.

Cheers

Didn't he buy the whole collection of Duesenberg cars from the Harrah collection? I think there was about 22 of them.
These are beautiful cars but I wonder if the General ever gets any real enjoyment from them other than looking at them. Come to think of it,is he still alive? The picture of him and his son and Randy was taken in 2007.
