AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - For the first time ever, the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum let the public have a once-in-a-lifetime experience of riding in a historic Auburn or Cord automobile.

Tom Rode's wife surprised him with this gift.

"I mean these are one of these times where you develope memories especially with your family. It's definitely cherished. Thanks to my wife. Thank you honey. It was spectacular," Rode said.

He, his two sons, and wife were all able to ride the classic car together.
