During the time folks were in Tampa preparing for their visit to the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, we had a chance to visit not only “Fiberglass Farms” but also our workshop – “The Glass Menagerie.” The photos below some of the projects currently in process at “The Menagerie” and we also used this time to have Merrill Powell check out two projects – the Dick Foster Victress and the Piranha Special.
Project 1: The Dick Foster Victress
This particular Victress had undergone extensive modifications by the original builder and the new owner wants to determine the differences from the unmodified Victress S1A body and how feasible it would be to make these changes so that the Dick Foster Victress might recover more of its original “Victress” look. Merrill Powell and Craig Johnson went right to work with measurements and discussions to determine this possibility.
Project 2: The Piranha Speedster
During this visit, our in-house fiberglass expert – Craig Johnson – wanted to get Merrill’s thoughts on an upcoming project that Craig wants to restore – the Piranha Speester. We recorded Merrill’s reactions to Craig’s questions on video for all to enjoy. It’s just under 15 minutes long. Click on the video below to begin your review.
It was a busy weekend – as it always is – when we feature a full class of vintage fiberglass cars at Amelia. And…our very next article will show you the cars on the field at Amelia. So stay tuned here to your favorite fiber-channel for more great glass and the final “glass act.”
Hope you enjoyed the story, and remember gang…
The adventure continues here at Forgotten Fiberglass.
