On my recent Holiday trip to Cleveland, besides seeing the Christmas Story movie home, going to the Crawford Museum to see the Jordon Speedway Ace was tops on my list. This car is nothing short of stunning, with dozens of killer little details that every traditional Hot Rodder hopefully will find interesting. As usual, seeing pictures, can't duplicate seeing it in the flesh. But I feel this is a significant piece of automotive history and wanted to share it with all you HAMB'rs. Here is a link to the entire article for those of you whom want to read it. Well worth the time. http://nl.newsbank.com/nl-search/we...ountid=AC0108122914503618949&s_upgradeable=no These are a few excerps, from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, should the article not link for you. Quote: Just as Starbucks doesn't sell coffee but the coffeehouse experience, so too with Jordan 85 years ago. It wasn't about the car. It was about the lifestyle it could drive you into. This, however, was just one of Jordan's accomplishments. He was quick to tell people he wasn't really a car manufacturer. He was an idea man. He had big ideas, and one of the biggest was creating the most fabulous car for the very, very few who might ever be able to afford it: the Model Z Speedway Ace, a veritable airplane on wheels. For a long time in the 1970s and 1980s, car collectors had talked about a mystery car somewhere in Cleveland. This was that car. On display now for first time The Jordan Model Z Speedway Ace has never been available for the public to see. Never, that is, until last month: After seven years and several hundred thousand dollars in restoration costs, the ivory roadster with the red leather interior now shimmers at its new temporary home, the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland's University Circle, courtesy of Stecker.
