Welcome to the start of our group of Skorpion owners. I am excited about establishing an informal group of Skorpion owners, talking and inspiring each other. This is of interest to me since I currently own a Skorpion and that I was lucky enough to meet and interview John Wills and others about the history of this car and its relevance to the era.
I am starting off with creating a a form that I am hoping that you will fill out in your spare time. This form will be used to create a database of Skorpion owners, and is in the “Skorpion” part of our website. This information will be shared by all Skorpion owners. I have been collecting literature for these cars for 20 years. I will be sharing this information with you fellow owners. I believe that the sharing of information will be interesting, and perhaps fun, at times. We, as a group, will foster a greater appreciation and respectability for these often overlooked cars.
I also belong to a larger group of car lovers that are particularly interested in Fiberglass cars of the 1950′s. We, as a group, are having a great time. This larger group is called “Forgotten Fiberglass” and there is a website and forum for discussion at the following location:
All in this Skorpion group will be invited to join the larger group. There are no commitments of any kind…….just a group of fiberglass car lovers talking and sharing.
My good friend, Geoff Hacker, is in the process of writing a book detailing the history of these Fiberglass Cars of the 1950′s. The book, also called “Forgotten Fiberglass”, will have a chapter on the Skorpion that I will be helping to write. All of these Forgotten Fiberglass cars will be elevated to the level that I believe they rightly deserve.
This is the start……………I am looking forward to hearing back from you and begin the sharing of my collection.
