Fifteen to twenty years ago, Glasspar Historian Emeritus (also a legendary car finder) Jean Poirier and his brother Emile went on a trek to see a long lost Devin racecar. It was being sold by a private owner in Massachusetts, and that was all that was known of it at that time.
Was it a race car?
Was it a sports car?
What engine did it have?
Is that a Buick Nailhead I spot?
Let’s have a look at the photos from that day:
That’s one gigantic hood scoop gang. That should make the car quite identifiable if someone knows the heritage of it.
Does the car still exist?
Is it hiding in the lonesome backyard of someone in the Northeast?
Has it been fully restored?
Perhaps all that remains are the photos that Jean Poirier took on that day so long ago.
So many questions….
Maybe one of the Forgotten Fiberglass Aficionados knows the rest of the story, and will tell it here at Forgotten Fiberglass 🙂
Thanks again to Jean Poirier for sharing the photos from so long ago. Hope you enjoyed the story, and until next time…
Glass on gang…
