Cars (History of Fiberglass Car Marques) — 2 Comments

  1. I just yesterday found out about forgotten fiberglass. I was at a car show in houston and we were judging a class called Forgotten Fiberglass which included a Victress. We were talking about glass cars in general when my friend me told about you guys. This is great.

  2. I have a flathead powered roadster “special” for sale on VT craigslist under cars for sale.It was built originally in the 50′s in Maine and rebuilt by me in the 90′s; the only fiberglass component is the nose piece-it is clearly early fiberglass construction-I don’t know much history of the car. I have driven it regularly but now it sits.
