RISKO CAR RETURNS RESTORED AND TAKES 1ST PLACE!

The famous boxer car made it's debut at The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival in Auburn, Indiana Labor Day Weekend and the crowds went wild! We heard comments like, "Your car is incredible!", "It's so elegant" and one gentleman even said that out of all of the 40 plus Speedsters that were in attendance, ours was the best. Hearing statements like this make all the hard work and long summer days and nights worthwhile for the team here at ACD.
The 1929 Auburn 8-120 Speedster was purchased new by Boxer Johnny Risko and later extensively modified. He kept the car until his death in 1953. When the new owner, Alan Atkinson, commissioned us to restore this car to its former glory, we gladly accepted the challenge!
Less than a year later, the Johnny Risko car took primary first place in its class at the ACD Festival!
Thank you to the wonderful individuals who helped to put on the event, the knowledgeable judges and our amazingly hard-working team here at The Original Auburn Cord Duesenberg Co.! Thank you, Doug, Bryan, Joe, Harley, Craiton and Luke. Special thanks to Bobby at South East Auto Trim/Dent Genie and Bill Bicknell for their expertise.
