Re: Two New West Coast Cars

Mike and Irene own that beautiful Flint. Roger up in Northern California owns that (also beautiful)DeVaux. I have Roger on my DeVaux Registry. When the DeVaux passed thru Kent coming from the frozen North (35 below and snowing) I was so happy to see it arrive (safely) that I never looked for numbers. I will call Roger.
I have to thank Mike Larsen for completing the last leg of the trip.

Re: Two New West Coast Cars

Hi Gary ... that the De Vaux you said was up in God's country, here in Canada, we knew / know nothing about, you were going to get us all its info on ?

Seems the 1924 E55 Flint was Bob Krause's and is in Photo section but we have no info on it other than to note the Registry as a footnote there is such a car. Hopefully Mike will forward the info to Steve on the form I sent him.

Re: Two New West Coast Cars

Hi Norm;
The Flint came from the Tampa/Clearwater area of Central Florida down here prior to Bob buying it. Before that it was supposedly restored and from New York area. Don't have any other genealogy on the car other than that. Those that have seen it know, but for others who have not, it has the California hard top with beveled glass windows in the side that slide back. Beautiful car!

Re: Two New West Coast Cars

Hi Mike, we have the full story now on the E55 Flint with all the details and numbers. Some of which is in DMAC Photos write up on this California hard top car. Harrah's owned it at one time. Its bounced around the US from owner to owner. Orig Calif 1924 and is back home in Calif again.

Yes a nice car.

Re: Two New West Coast Cars

Hi Gary ... I just heard the De Vaux came from Alaska, so is not the one you were going to give us info on up in Canada around Edmonton, I think. Neither car is in the Registry, so we look forward to more info to add those ones.

Beginning to think there are more De Vaux's around than Durant's as the listing gets longer. Sure not rare cars.
