Publicity for Billy Durant

In the January issue of Hemmings Classic Cars there is an article on Billy Durant and his history written by one of the regular writers.

Do You own a car built by Durant? Almost

Re: Publicity for Billy Durant

Just returned to NJ from our vacation home in San Diego, and also just finished reading my copy of Classic Car.

Hmmmm.....the story about Billy Durant in that issue is interesting...does one get the impression that the writer of the article does not like the founder of our cars?

The article failed to mentioned many good things that Billy Durant did. One in particular, and those that attended the 2004 annual meeting in NJ learned this, that the residents of Deal, NJ really like Billy Durant. He did donate the land and the money to construct their city hall in 1924. He also constructed those 13 houses on the street directly behind city hall.
