Do You own a car built by Durant? 1928 Rugby model X and 1928 Durant 2dr coupe model D40

Re: Leaside Plant address

The Canada Wire and Cable are long gone and several big box stores occupy the site where the factory was at Laird and Wicksteed. I'm not sure but I belive the offices were on the oppsite side of Laird and might still be standing. If you find out or find the plaque please let me know where. Thanks in advance

Re: Leaside Plant address

Hi Dennis, I emailed you a picture of the Leaside plant around 1928. I did have some more information on the plant but it was lost in a HD crash.
