Laurent sitting in history.

Dave Boon of Ottawa, Ontario owns and races a piece of history.

The 1930's Hubley Bluenose Special hails from Halifax, Nova Scotia and is named after it's creator.

It's safe to say that it is probably the oldest original functioning racer in Canada. I had the honour of developing the period-style graphics for the racer.

My son Laurent and I had the great pleasure of finally meeting Dave at the Mosport Vintage Racing Festival in June 2007.

Laurent filmed the Hubley Bluenose Special with it's vintage Chevy engine running; it carries some actual period Chevy performance parts ... amazing!
