Thanks for the info! If I was financially in the Duesenberg class, I would have to buy the Judkins from Blackhawk. We think we have some additional images of the Yount Duesenberg's on 40 rolls of film we discovered in the Yount family archives. This film is currently being restored and should be ready in a couple of weeks.

This only has a very tenuous connection to the Yount's, but what the heck! Today I purchased the historic 1896 Polk Mansion at 1315 Calder Avenue in Beaumont, Texas.

It is across the street from where the Yount home stood at 1376 Calder, and is less than one block from the historic Mildred Building built by Yount.

As soon as we can make the sagging porches safe we'll invite all of our ACD friends, and those from the numerous other cultural, historical organizations, and car clubs we belong to for a weenie roast and pre-restoration peek.

Although the house looks big in the picutres it is even more so in person. It has six bedrooms, a paneled study, four bath rooms, four fire places, front and rear staircases, a huge parlor, over 2,000 sq ft of porches, beautiful arched interior doors, leaded glass windows, etc, etc.

We are very fortunate in that Calder Avenue is about to receive a $47MM historic makeover and we will be in the thick of things. This will include burying all of the power lines, new storm sewers, hike and bike paths, historic lighting, and victorian landscaping.

That house looks beautiful.

It will look even MORE beautiful when restored.

And it will look STUNNING with one of John O'Quinn's Duesies parked in front of it! :D

I was wondering how the restoration was coming?

Thanks for asking! Actually we have made slow but steady progress. I expect to make a major announcement late in January regarding the future of the house.
