Devin D-Porsche vintage race car. One of the original Devin D cars
as manufactured by Bill Devin at his Rialto Motor Works factory in California.
While the Devin SS is certainly well know in vintage racing (15 built),
they also built 140 "C" and 160 "D" models. The basic D model featured
Volkswagen components while 356 Porsche components were an option. In consulting
with Bill during restoration, he estimated they built about 60 D's with
the Porsche options. This is one of those cars, which was restored as a
vintage race car in 1991 and actively raced til 2001."

"Thanks. That is a Devin D.
They are relatively common, not as good looking, not on a Porsche chassis,
and built a couple years after mine."

"I have a possible lead on the history
of my car. Dave Skilling is listed as a driver of a FM Porsche Special
in several races in 1958 and 1959 in the San Francisco area. In particular
he had car #82 at Laguna in June 1958 and car #70 at Riverside in July
1959. Does anyone know anything about Dave Skilling or his Porsche
