The directors of the Studebaker National Museum announce the establishment of the Campisi Education Fund. The fund was created with the donation of a 1955 Studebaker President Speedster that will be auctioned off at the Auburn Auction this Saturday with all proceeds going to the Campisi Fund. The Speedster was found by Robert Campisi from a salvage yard in California over 30 years ago and after an exhaustive restoration, toured many shows and concourses around the country.

The auction will be conducted by Worldwide Auctioneers and it will cross the block this Saturday evening without reserve in Auburn, Indiana. For more information, visit www.studebakermuseum.org and www.worldwide-auctioneers.com

The staff at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum announces the second of three $25,000 donations from the Horizon Bank to the Museum. Museum CEO Brandon J. Anderson said, “We are so grateful for the support and partnership that we enjoy with Horizon Bank.” The funds will be used to support the preservation of the National Historic Landmark building. One such project will include restoring the Museum’s Showroom to its original 1930 appearance, from the multichromatic colors and the terrazzo floors, to the Art Deco splendor of the times.

Horizon Bank is planning to make three donations over a three-year period, the first was made in 2018. The ACD Museum is located in Auburn, Indiana, which was the original 1930s national headquarters of the Auburn Automobile Company. For more information, visit www.automobilemuseum.org.
