Current owners of Duesenberg name, trademark, etc.?

Hi Jeff,

I thought #1 was sitting in Glenn Pray's museum in broken arrow? Perhaps his is #2? While I prefer the original, the Glenn Pray addition is unique in it's own right and I certainly wouldn't mind having one.

The serial # on the one in Glenn Pray's Museum is PT 1003.
I would interpret that to be Prototype #3.

The Club accepts Second Generation cars and has grown to incorporate the best historical and technical minds on those cars, as with our other makes. (Notice we have a Second Generation forum here.) I recommend joining the Club, if you haven't already, because it will be an invaluable resource as the car goes back together.

It would be welcome at the Reunion this year, on a trailer, under its own power, or however you can get it there.

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.

Mr. Wahl seems to have been diligent in also protecting the name for use on other products as diverse as motorcycles, aircraft, casinos, restaurants, cologne, leather goods, watches, etc etc.

At any rate, an earlier article in the Communique stated that Mr. Prey had acquired the rights to the Auburn-Cord-Duesenburg name and trademarks, etc, and the most recent article states that Mr. Prey is still the president of Auburn-Cord-Duesenburg. However, in the January 5, 2004 issue of AutoWeek, on page 7, there is an article titled ?Does Duesey Have a Future?? that states that Dave Hartje of Wisconsin currently has the rights to the Duesenburg name, and is president of Duesenberg filezilla uc browser rufus Motors, and has been since 1996. (I also remember that descendents of the Duesenburg brothers tried to revive the marque in the mid 60?s and the late 70?s/early 80?s, and maybe, I suspect, that is where the divergence occurred.) At any rate, I am now wondering about the true provenance of the A-C-D marques and trademarks. If Hartje has the Duesey rights, how can Mr. Prey be president of Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg?
