On September 16, 2018 my good friend Ray Belsito Jr. and I along with two photographers from Las Vegas, Mikaela Maranhas and Tara Haywood, left Providence, Rhode Island aboard a 1934 Duesenberg J-505 Convertible Sedan by Derham to join twenty five other Duesenberg owners in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire for the Duesenberg Tour 2018. We were based at the beautiful Mount Washington Hotel and we logged approximately one thousand miles as we toured the beautiful mountainous regions in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont for four days. We visited the Sargeant Metal Works, American Precission Museum, collections of Chuck Schwager, Richie Clyne, and Bob Bahre. We also enjoyed a beautiful boat trip on Lake Winnipesauke and a trip to the top of Mount Washington. We taped over sixty hours of footage on this tour and have whittled it down to a fortyfive minute presentation that we invite you to view here. I hope you enjoy the tour.
