Publisher's Summary

Here's a biographical profile of the Duesenberg brothers, Augie and Fred, who built some of America's most famous cars, cars that today sell for millions at auctions. Jay Leno, owner of an extensive classic car collection, calls the Duesenberg SJ his favorite car. He feels it is "probably the greatest American car" ever built.The Duesenberg name evokes images of a European heritage, an automobile built in the image and traditions of iconic stalwarts such as Mercedes, Benz, Bugatti and Ferrari. But the European heritage is an illusion. Their cars were born in Iowa! Duesenbergs were sought by royalty movie stars, and industrial tycoons, from Gary Cooper and Clark Gable to W.R. Hearst, the Duke of Windsor and William Wrigley, Jr. The story of the boys from Iowa and their meteoric rise to creating the greatest American car is a fascinating adventure in the American dream.
