Bill Hummel '71

Bill Hummel '71 is the grandson of E.L. Cord, maker of the classic Cord car. Cords are considered to be one of the top 10 car designs of all time and they feature many “Firsts” including front-wheel drive and hidden headlights. Famous owners include Amelia Earhart, Johnny Weissmuller, Tom Mix, Sonja Henje, Bing Crosby, and Groucho Marx.
Hummel is president of the Auburn Cord Dusenberg Club, the group of car owners that reunites every year in DeKalb County. Each year, the club picks a car to spotlight, and in 2011 it was the Cord 810, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. The Cabriolet, the rarest of all the 810/812 Cords, was made in 1936 and1937. Back then, a Cord cost about $2,700, while a house was only $2,000.
