Commodore created the topic: William Mulholland had a Duesenberg?
I was talking to several members of the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) region that I belong to about my father?s Duesenberg when one of the wives said that her father was a driver for William Mulholland of Los Angeles aqueduct fame in the mid twenties and she thought the car that her father drove was a Duesenberg. She wants to know if the car really was a Duesenberg.

Hello,

if, it would be pre-Model J, Mulhollands career as the L.A. Water-inspector ended in 1928 after a dam-break-disaster.

Here an other (or the same) whitness who tells about her father, who drove Mr. Mullholland in a Duesenberg in the 1920s.
