A Star is reborn: Restoring a 1926 Star 4 Coupster
It took 20 years of teamwork, determination and elbow grease but, Wayne Seward of Vermilion, Alberta, and his good friend Hugh Gould managed to put this old 1926 Star 4 Coupster back together again.According to Wayne, it’s now one of only 12 Star 4 Coupsters in existence in North America, and shines brightly wherever it makes an appearance. Above, Wayne takes his grandson Zachary Rempel, for a spin!
Here are a few photos showing the car’s progress from start to finish!
