Volvo Auto Museum is a unique establishment where a lot of the exhibits on display can actually be purchased. They also have a number of world class collections, Duesenberg being one of these.

The museum has recently published an excellent piece on the Evolution and History of the Duesenberg brand

Pick of the Day was special ordered by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas
You don’t have to be the owner of a Wendy’s restaurant franchise to want to buy the Pick of the Day, but it might help. The car is a 1978 Glassic roadster done in the style of a 1929 Ford Model A and was specially ordered by Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas, according to the Volo, Illinois, dealer advertising the car on ClassicCars.com.
“Dave custom ordered this factory-built 1978 Glassic roadster to suit his specific needs, which was an eye-catching paint scheme using the colors from the Wendy’s logos,” the dealer says.
“Most of the Glassics were equipped with a 4 cyl and no options, Dave ordered this one with a 302, power steering, brakes and an automatic transmission.
