Here's a few from Connersville (maybe August 1964?). From a time when even the Mormon Meteor still had to put coins in the meter...







The handmade sign says:

Duesenberg SJ Special
This is the Ab Jenkins Mormon Meteor I-II
World Records
1Hr 155.6 MPH
24Hr 135.8 MPH

It looks good in Maroon. I assume the current yellow was the original color? Back around 1958 or so it was for sale in front of the court house for 8500.00

Alex always had the highest respect for Gertrude (and her cooking).

Thank you so much for sharing all of these photos, Steve...absolutely fascinating and I've yet to see one I have seen before. In photos your uncle always looks very dapper, even in casual shots like that one. You have a treasure trove and seem to be an excellent caretaker for it.

My other hobby, outside of cars, is cooking. I wonder if any of Mrs. Duesenberg's recipes have survived. Women of her era usually kept measurements in their head and the "receipts" died with them, unfortunately.

My guess is that some of the photos are from 1959. I don't see anything newer than 1959 cars on the street, and it looks to me like that 59 Plymouth coupe in the background on the lawn might be a new car giveaway raffle. The Plymouth has what looks like a new car price sticker in the side window.

Photo locale sure looks much more like Auburn than Connersville.
