DeVaux owner..Peking to Paris

A club member (DeVaux owner from Lebanon) is now running the Peking to Paris race. Well, not in his DeVaux but I had to post this anyway. He is #61 and in a 64 Porsche 356A (or is it a B? It has been 50 years since I drove one.) The web site is www2.endurorally.com.

Re: DeVaux owner..Peking to Paris

Gary- Neat pictures on this website. I think the Europeans are more at ease taking a high end eighty year old car and flogging it in the middle of nowhere(like in some of those pictures). We have to move our cars through the various Barrett-Jackson auctions and making sure the inside of the gas caps are polished. RosscoeRhoT7Y

Re: DeVaux owner..Peking to Paris

It was just by chance I found a Facebook post with Charbel's name on it. Today he sent me a e-mail to tell me that he is in Mongolia.
Also, He sent me some great pictures of his DeVaux all restored. I see another good story for the Partner.

Ross: as you see I made a mistake on the Porsche....it's a C.
