I hope you can tell which is the more famous name.  🙂  (Hint: it’s the car.)

Here’s the original song that I riffed for my title.  Nothing like some old Beach Boys. Listen to the original “Little Deuce Coupe” here, but it wasn’t a Duesenberg!  Just look how young these guys were then.  (But weren’t we all a lot younger then?)

    The Beach Boys song does bring back memories alright, nice choice.

  2. Laura says:

    wow, where did you find the photo?

    • I was at a plaza off the interstate, waiting for one daughter to arrive at O’Hare Airport and this beauty (post coming one day soon with more photos) was on display. Had to whip out my phone for a few shots.

    Janet, great image …. great entry.

  4. Sandra says:

    I always wondered what the lyric meant there – I used to think it was something to do with ‘douce’ 😦
    Lovely photo.

    What’s in a name? Everything $$$$ if you are in advertising, or life if you are Romeo or Juliet. Juliet says it well, “Wherefore art thou Romeo? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” My quote may not be exact. I had to ask my husband what this actually meant. It did not make sense to me. (He was an English prof) In middle English “wherefore’ meant why. She is saying why are you a Montegue, you would be my love even if you were not. In this case the name means everything.
    Did you know there is an electric guitar company in Hamburg, Germany named ‘Duesenberg?

  6. Paula says:

    Thank you for providing a link to the music too. Cool entry, Janet.

    Beach Boys. Illinois State Fair. On the track just in front of the stage. In the pouring rain, mud up to my ankles. Knew the words to every song they sang!!! WooHoo!

    I was never a great fan when I was younger, but they seem to get better as I get older! 🙂

    Very cool old emblem.

    and the Beach Boys – now there is a familiar name from long ago…..
