As the Auburn Automobile Company's last activities came to a close, a group of enthusiasts thought it was time to share the rich and vibrant history of this great car company. Soon the annual ACD Festival held every year become one of the largest car collector events in the world. Among the traditions of the ACD Festival is the award-winning artwork of John Souder. Souder created the first 37 posters for the annual Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival that celebrated the cars built by the Auburn Automobile Company. Souderís incredible eye for detail and artistic prose was a rare talent that very few possess. Indeed, his posters are now collectible treasures and his artwork appeared on T-shirts, bumper stickers, badges, flags and collector plates, all promoting the festival that he loved so much and became an integral part of. Sadly, John Souder passed away in October of 2018. His 1993 Nissan 300ZX is now being offered with all proceeds going to the festival. It is certainly fitting that a man of Souderís talent would select a brilliant red 300ZX for one of his methods of transportation. The smooth lines of the 300ZX are certainly something that would appeal to an artist and, with a powerful V-6 under the hood, itís a car that is as fast as it looks. The Souder car features a gray interior with power seats in a driverís environment that can only be described as the modern interpretation of the Grand Touring experience. This is an incredibly well-cared-for car that even retains the storage bags for the T-tops. The engine bay is clean and tidy while carrying the look as a powerful engine. Overall, this 300ZX is an incredibly preserved time capsule that can be driven with complete reliability. The sale of this 300ZX represents a wonderful opportunity to own a great car that honors a great man, for a great cause.
