You picked a very interesting car company. It really got exciting when E L Cord bought the company in the mid 20s. He had some great ideas about building a fancy car to sell at a low price. They made some pretty sensational cars like a boat tail speedster in 1927 that had a ding dong battle with Stutz for the stock car championship. Stutz won by less than 2 miles per hour but Auburn put up a great performance, especially when you consider the Stutz was a $5000 car and the Auburn was a $1000 car.

In 1931 and 32 Auburn made a V12 luxury car that sold for under $1000, a fantastic bargain but not the kind of bargain a lot of people were looking for in those depression years. They replaced it with a supercharged straight eight, which was available as a boat tail speedster. This speedster was so sensational looking and made such an impression on the public that you can buy copies of it to this day. It was also one of the hottest performing cars of its day.
