1929 Duesenberg Model J Murphy Dual Cowl Phaeton

The owner has stated that although it cruises best at 60-70 mph, its factory-claimed 90 mph in second gear is not an exxageration!

The Duesenberg was first owned by ‘Roxy” Rothafel of Roxy Theatre and Music Hall fame.

1941 Cadillac Series 62 Convertible Coupe. The chassis was modified by “Dutch” Darrin, a renowned coach builder, known for his “Dutch” dip (in the doors).

1955 Packard Caribbean Convertible. The car features a 352 c.i. engine, Ultramatic transmisison, power brakes, steering, windows and seats, and dual heaters!
