...GingerCar on display...
There's a few differences, the biggest is that Ginger had whitewalls on it, while it currently does not... also, currently the vehicle has two taillights, whereas the original had one...that's to meet current DOT requirements, I assume... but other than that, it's a dead ringer!
Here's a link to the event, from Old Cars Weekly .com:
Amelia Island info regarding Ginger's 1929 Model J Duesenberg
...here's ANOTHER GingerEvent that I would LOVE to go to, but may be hard in theory...even though Florida (Amelia Island is right at the state line between Florida and Georgia, at the Atlantic Coast) is definitely a 'doable' trip from South Gingerville, as compared to Oregon or Boston! But, I'm not sure if I 'qualify' for admission to Amelia Island...hm...maybe I can swing a 'press pass' for Gingerology! ...wonder how close they are allowed to put a Days Inn from a Ritz-Carlton? :-]
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
