Welcome To Forgotten Fiberglass


Forgotten Fiberglass – Our Material Matters

Celebrating Postwar Hand-Crafted Sports Cars

Forgotten Fiberglass is a bunch of passionate car guys and gals. No blue blazers here (not that there’s anything wrong with that). Though we tend to work on our cars, many of us are writers, researchers, historians, collectors, and restorers. Above all, we are automobile enthusiasts.

We’re here to discover, recover, and return to the road some of Americas most interesting forgotten cars.  Geoff Hacker and Rick D’Louhy take the wheel most of the time, but a good crew is always in tow.  

So jump in and take a ride on our website. There’s something for everyone who loves cars and the fascinating histories of the people behind them.
