Another DeVaux found

First of all I have to thank Frank for the E-mail last night that led me to this find.

There are some names on the Registry that go back a lot of years since last contact. This 31 Sport Coupe was last known to be in up-state N.Y. in the 80's. The man I just talked to bought it from a man that found it under a haystack in another small town a few miles from him.

I am also trying to locate what I call the "Ben Minger" car. Mr. Minger was a DeVaux dealer from Salt Lake City that went to Oakland to pick up one of the first cars. His car was sold in Utah in 11/92. Lost contact after that.
