Good morning, everyone! I also wanted to share some of the incredible information and pictures I received from Bill Dreist. He was even generous enough to send me a portion of the car's original headliner. The car was long gone- in pieces- before he even acquired the rear section for his Duesenberg, so the fact that he had it- and was willing to gift it to me- is really remarkable to me. It is as close as I will ever get to my grandfather's car and it is no doubt the original material from Derham, when the car was built. I have it in safe storage with all of my other Duesenberg literature, pictures, and documentation.

I would love to ride in a Model J Duesenberg one day...just to feel what it was like. I am in Lake Elsinore, California and would love to hear back from anyone if that is even a remote possibility. I know Jay Leno has a bunch about 60 miles away...LOL. I was fortunate to meet him at Pebble Beach in 2015 when I was there for the historic kustom Mercury gathering, put on by Ken Gross. I caught Jay Leno in the unloading lot while he was looking at a few Duesenbergs and showed him pictures of my grandfather's car on my phone and told him what I knew about it. He asked if it was still around and that was about it...got a cool picture with him and had him sign my map to the parking area, upside-down. I didn't see him at the Concours afterwards, but as I was driving home, here comes Jay, flying onto the freeway in his Bentley, just north of LA.
