Default The Duesenberg automobile

Considered the world's most beautiful cars at the time (1920's & 1930's), the were also the fastest production cars on the road.

See my YouTube video of 10 of these cars at the Lyon Air Museum here in Orange County.

This one was owned by a Maharishi. Notice the separate "parking" lights. One red and one blue. When he drove it the running lights were red, so that the appropriate servants would greet him as he arrived back at the mansion. The blue light signified that his wife was driving and that her own servants should prepare for her arrival.
