1930 J Walker Legrande Torpedo Phaeton- Not just a car, it's a Duesenberg, aka "Doozy"

Reach back for some choice slang, and think about how an automobile considered the biggest, the fastest and the best became known as a Doozy. Pretty hard to find a Duesenberg these days, but you can come to a real “Doozy of a Do…”  at the Culver Hotel on Sept. 18 when The Culver City Historical Society (CCHS) will present a celebration of the city’s 94-year history.

Festivities will include music and dancing to the music of “DOOZY,” a band specializing in “prohibition pop, depression era tunes, and retro-originals” every Thursday evening at the Culver Hotel; bountiful arrays of appetizers and desserts; a raffle and auction; silent movies; historic Culver City cocktails at a no host bar, and many more surprises.

The newly-renovated Historic Culver Hotel at 9400 Washington Boulevard (from 5:30 to 9 pm)  will be the scene to steal and the tires to squeal on this doozy, and it’s once in a lifetime event you cant miss.

The public is invited to attend and encouraged to wear costumes of the 1920s and 1930s. Tickets are $45 per person and reservations are required. Checks for reservations should be sent to the Culver City Historical Society, Box 3428, Culver City, California, 90231-3428. (Admission is $50 at the door). Tickets may also be purchased at the CCHS’s Archives and Resource Center on Saturday, September 3 from 1-3 PM.
