Marc ..I hope you are considering joining DMAC if not a member yet. The menu on left side of the page has the Join Us Registration.

The late Terry Kulchycki of Winnipeg Manitoba created Durantcar site online, which has partly been moved to DMAC, again in menu. Click on that, go to Registries, then Star Registry. That has the Stars registered by Plant, Year, and Models. Number of coups.

Steve Large of Mississauga Ont is the keeper of the Durant Registry. stevelarge@rogers.com or durantcars@durantmotors.org or
steve@durantmotors.org or phone 905-271-3669. However there are problems presently with durantcars which was explained in another forum item Jan 6 2014 under “Terry's original Durantcar site” which in part says "There was an issue with that made it not possible to transfer to the club and Terry had renewed the domain name for four extra years just prior to his death. So we won't get it for some time to come.”

Having said that completion of the registration form asks you fill in all the details of your car, which in turn is sent to Bob Smith who sends a copy to Steve for the Registry. You could email Steve directly with same info he is keeping until we have access to Terry’s site.

If I have missed anything Steve, Frank, or Rick can add their comments.

Re: any idea on how many?

Marc, I have been working on the Durant Registry for awhile now after Terry's passing, I will add your vehicle as soon as you can pass along it's details, Year, make, model, body style, color, I.D plate number, engine plate number, and head & block casting numbers. all the aforementioned details if known, and also if the car is complete and in running condition, a work in progress, needs restoration or parts car. I will also send you back an e-mail letting you know how many coupes of your year are registered, as for how many are running I have no idea as any previously registered vehicles do not indicate if running or not, what I do have is names of some of the owners of those registered if that helps.

Re: any idea on how many?

Marc, firstly thank you for the details on your car for the registry, I wish everyone would send a completed package as you have and nice photo also. To answer your question. I have on my Registry for 1926 Star R Coupe 12 listings of which 3 are from the same Elizabeth factory. Hope this information is helpful to you.
