A Visit to the Nethercutt Collection!

Bob at the NethercuttThe Nethercutt Collection is in Sylmar, CA, and if you are ever in Southern California, GO THERE! I visited in April, 2007. It was a visit that I will never forget!

The Collection was started by J.B. Nethercutt, a CalTech graduate who started Merle Norman Cosmetics with his aunt. It contains over 240 Vintage, Classic, and Special Interest automobiles, nearly every one restored to perfection! The building across the street houses the Grand Salon where two dozen cars from the collection are displayed in grandeur. The Duesenberg "Twenty Grand" (J513, see My Collection) is among them.

There are four Duesenbergs in the Collection:

 1923 Model A Phaeton

 J513/2539 - Arlington Torpedo Sedan LWB SJ (Rollston). The "Twenty Grand."

 1934 Dual Cowl Phaeton, (Murphy)

 J533/2561 - Convertible Coupe, SWB SJN (Rollston).

Oh, yes, they have a 1983 Delorean also! I think the VIN is 16430. (I tried to get a photo of the VIN plate, but it's too blurry to read.)
