I have enjoyed your museum very much. It was a wonderful experience. I liked the photos you have. Sometime in the future I would like to come to see the museum in real life.

I was told the J Frank Duryea died in Pasadena CA in the late 50s or early 60s. Do you know if this is true. I was told he lived at the old Green Hotel in Pasadena. Thank You for your website and the excellent information.

Other memories

October 21, 1996 - Kirk Gibson writes:

Your Duryea was rescued from a farmer's field near Reading, PA, in 1944 by Mr. Kirkland H. Gibson, of North Kingstown, RI (my father). While the car was being hauled to RI, the driver was flagged over by an elderly gentleman who asked where i t was going. The next day, the gentleman, who turned out to be Charles B. King, drove J. Frank Duryea to my father's house. Mr. Duryea asked if he could rebuild the car, and his offer was immediately accepted. He took it to his home in Madison, CT, and rebuilt it from the original drawings and with some of the original tools, in time to drive in the reenactment of the 1895 Times Herald race, which was held in Chicago in 1945.
