Remarkably this car is one of two left that is owned and maintained by the individual who built it – Dick Foster. In the late 1950’s, Dick’s Wildfire was the star of car shows throughout Michigan. Its appearance today at the Milwaukee Masterpiece Concours d’Elegance is the first show it’s been to since the 1950’s.
