Glasspar – Home
This area of our website focuses on Glasspar and its history. However…we’re not the first to recognize this marque. Originally, there was a “Glasspar G2 Club” founded by Jean Poirer in 1994. The Club’s objective was to provide a Registry of all Glasspars, to be a history and knowledge source for members and a place for member resource exchange. There was a Club Newsletter as well. Later, the Glasspar G2 Club was managed and expanded by Bill Hoover. I have since become good friends with Jean Poirier, but it’s with regret, I never had a chance to meet Bill Hoover. Bill passed away in December 2006, but I have learned to appreciate his passion for these cars through a good friendship with his son Patrick. In this spirit, we carry on the legacy of the Glasspar G2 Club that both Jean and Bill built in the 1990′s and 2000′s.
Many of the pages in this area of our website are taken directly from Jean and Bill’s original work, and we have expanded and added to these pages as well. It’s with honor and pride that we maintain this section of our Forgotten Fiberglass website and recognize the work and achievement that both Bill and Jean and the original Glasspar Club started so many years ago.
As vintage fiberglass cars have been more widely recognized and appreciated, the Glasspar G2 club has been integrated into the Forgotten Fiberglass website and enthusiast group. While we continue to recognize the achievement of Bill Tritt and the design of his cars, we now honor the great number of designers, builders, businessmen, and entreprenuers who brought these cars to life in the 1950′s and beyond.
