There is an old guy in Wellington Ks that has a bit of a Cord/Auburn museum, & a shop where he rebuilds parts & cars. I was there when he showed a group of people a fender he was making. Using only an power planishing hammer & an English wheel. It is quite the shop, & I can't remember the name of the guy or his shop.
These old Cords, Auburns, & Duesenbergs are some of the most beautifully designed cars, I think.
