How many more Duesenbergs in the Lyon collection? I see that the LaGrande phaeton is not in this exhibit.

Update: Regarding the LaGrande. My fault. I was thinking of a different owner.

I saw the exhibit yesterday, quite impressive. I will post photos in the next day or two.

I was told that the exhibit is being extended for another two weeks.

darn I would like to have met you. We were proably bumping into each other with our cameras. Did you have a 35mm with big lens by chance?
