Josh Malks lent me his copy of a 1932 Time Magazine that featured E.L. Cord on the cover.

Do you know what some people in the automotive industry said about the Cord cars?

Actually, it was pretty funny.

Bill-

The natives in Auburn and Connersville Indiana called the Cord a Front Drive Auburn. The first prototype for the 810 Cord looked like a Auburn Sedan with the Cord front fenders.

There is an artist's sketch in Josh's book.
