Re: 1931 (wood wheel) DeVaux.!!

Hi Gary:
That wood Wheel Devaux that you are referring to was owned by Willis (Porky_) Schneider of Kitchener. He was the second owner of that vehicle and he knew it for a long time before he purchased it in the late 40's .
He brought it to our Durant meet when we had it in Fremont, Nebraska. That year we had 7 DeVaux's on tour. He trailered it to Nebraska, and I drove my Frontenac. That was a great meet.
That DeVaux has never been restored, just kept up over the years. The last few years, Porky drove it on 5 cylenders and it seemed to run OK. I don't believe that the chap who bought it at Porky's sale has ever driven it. I tried to get him to come out to some of our Durant meets but he never responded.
I do hope someone in the club purchases the car. Any idea what he is asking for it?


Where Are You From? Guelph, Ontario, Canada

Do You own a car built by Durant? 1932 Frontenac built by Dominion Motors Limited, Leaside, On tario
