Geoff Hacker

Geoff Hacker has been called “Captain Curiosity” and the author and Cars Yeah guest Tom Cotter titled him “The Snipe Hunter” in his book Corvette in the Barn. Geoff’s a college professor, automotive historian, researcher, and adventurer. He’s the king of automotive barn finds and he’ll go anywhere to uncover and bring back to life vehicles many of us never knew existed or thought were long gone. Along with his friend of 30 plus years Rick D’Louhy they co-produce the website Forgotten Fiberglass where you can find them and the treasures they uncover. And now they are working on a book to share with the world under the same titles.

  1. Great interview with Geoff Hacker of Forgotten Fiberglass.
    Enjoy hearing about some of the cars that were designed and built back when I was born in 1951
    Through Geoff I’m now restoring a 1952 Glasspar G2 my Dad Warren Gerdes helped build while working at the Glasspar Boat Company in Santa Ana, California from 1948 to 1959.
    Looking forward to more interviews.
    Regards, Dennis Gerdes
