Car Corral


ACD Museum

Whenever we are in Auburn, IN, we always plan for a stop at the ACD Museum. Located in the former headquarters of the Auburn Automobile Company in Auburn, Indiana, this museum is a perfectly preserved time capsule of motor cars produced during the the late ’20s and early ’30s. As you step inside the art deco showroom, which contains the largest and most impressive display of Auburns, Cords, and Duesenbergs in the world, it isn’t hard to imagine being greeted by a suave salesman, in a snappy bow tie. It is definitely a step back in time. Here’s a quick tour.
