The story of this L-29 Cord, number 2927898, is an adventure. It begins, like a lot of adventures, innocently enough: a production line in a small Indiana farm town, ironically turning out one of the most advanced automobiles the world had yet known. It continues across the Atlantic, with craftsmen's hammers busy at work in a shop deep within a darkening Berlin. It leads to dusty storage in Argentina, and then to rediscovery, repatriation, restoration, and, finally, to the happiest and most triumphant of all possible endings..
