It brings me absolute joy to introduce globally to collector car enthusiasts ANY creation designed and built by Paul Normand of Rochester, New Hampshire as his cars the world over are appreciated, collected and curated in many of the world's finest rare car museum collections from the little known (with 500 fabulously rare automobiles) $50 million Evergreen Historic Automobile Museumcollection in Lebanon, Missouri to the illustrious and globally renownedPeterson Museum in Los Angeles, California. Quite simply, automobile museums have one goal in mind, and that is to get paying customers through the doors and the only way to do this is put on display extraordinary, rare and UNUSUAL cars! I have owned 14 Paul Normand automobiles in my lifetime and without exaggeration, most of my sales of Normand automotive masterpieces were acquisitions directly by museum curators/owners themselves, and then there were a few that happened while driving on the street by curious motorists following alongside for miles and while waiting at a traffic signal, getting my attention and asking "How Much"?
At first you gloat and bathe in pride of ownership until the second and third stoplights reveal that these are not passive inquiries, but maniacally aggressive, impulsive offers to sell you car on the spot! I have experienced this myself and several others who have owned Paul Normand Boat Tail Racers/Speedsters have incredibly relayed to me the exact same experience as rare, beautiful and/or unusual collector cars are in such demand that quality replicas of Auburns, Lamborghini's and now even first generation Corvettes now sell in excess of $100,000. Life is just too short to motor around in mundane cars, and driving exceptional automobiles is downright exciting !!

Mr. Paul Normand is now approaching 70+ years of age (I suspect) and he builds only 2-3 cars each year releasing them in the spring (working all winter) and I have the coveted privilege of first right of refusal to any Normand automobile/masterpiece newly built and offered by Paul (I haven't refused any builds of his since I met him by phonea few years ago). This fabulous and imposingbig bodied 1919 Buick Racerand titled as such is aesthetically bordering "Whimsical and Menacing" as the "eight"side cowl exhaust pipes are not only functional, but percussive, thunderous and combustible with an occasional spark or flame emanating from the pipes upon aggressive acceleration, and if you enter some sort of local or regional car show anddon't take home any awards or trophy's,then you drive lead footed and "Blast" &"Dynamite" your way home knowing the whole thing was rigged. Again, this car is a "Show Stopper"!
The car was preliminarily photographed(ok, I begged)last week and Paul is still putting finishing touches, fitting and calibrating cowl panels, brakes and whatever else requiring adjustments. I am the very, very proud the owner of this dramatic bullet tailed"Fire Breathing Dragon" and the car will be in New Hampshire for probably one more week, after which time I will have it transported to my home in Key West to terrorize the wild chickens and five toed "Hemingway Cats". If your personality is bigger than life and you don't mind an "All Eyes on Me" type of car, then get aggressive about owning this instant museum classic (Paul Normand cars NEVER LAST LONG ON THE MARKET), because you won't be finding another one like it, or anything remotely close to it for that matter for under $75,000 (visited "Pre War Cars" online publicationlately?).
This car operates and drives as it should and is a safe, prudent and most importantly an enjoyable investment, sure to appreciate every year you own it!!
THE STOCK MARKET IS RIGGED & VOLATILE RIGHT NOW. DIVERSIFY INTO HARD, COLLECTIBLE CAR ASSETS, YOU'LL SLEEP BETTER AT NIGHT, and you'll have a whole lot more fun during the day!!!
I can fully arrange expeditious and reasonably car transporting services to your driveway for around $0.67 per mile in about 7 days after payment is received.
This is what ambitious teenagers did before the scourge of computers; ipads and worst of all video games. Paul Normand far right.
