Time flies

Dear DMAC,
We finally got my Racingrust.com website updated and operating again.
It' been 5 1/2 years since Rick added it to the links page. Time really flies!
This project has been a ball the entire way. All of the research, the designing,the mechanical,the fabrication,and now driving it, has really been an adventure.
The friendships all along the way have been the best.
DMAC information was most important many times, including the licensing
process. I would like to thank you for your help.

Do You own a car built by Durant? 25 Star

Re: Time flies

Hey Don, are you sure it wasn't a racer at one time. Prior to the 30's, the age of the Star there wasn't that much racing performance parts out there. No Offenhausers, or racing headers etc so local race tracks probably raced what they had. We know of one original Durant race car that married two Durant Continental engines together and raced it. This was later reproduced by past member Jeff Cromeens from Texas. There is another race car in Monaco and one in France, or maybe it's the same one now, but I've seen pictures of those. And the son of Billy Durant raced Durant cars too. Not all of them were professionally made but made in shops by individuals tinkering. If your car could only talk, it would tell us of it's rich history, ans seeing the checker flag come down on her at least once I bet you.
