Help to re-build the first gasoline car in Canada. George Foss’ grandson, Ron Foss has talked with automobile historians and has sought the help of other potential experts in “Vintage Automobile Restoration,” for a very special project. The goal, is to use reverse engineering to create a tribute of George Foss’ invention: the first gasoline powered automobile built in Canada: the Fossmobile. Ron will provide oversight for this process and collaborate with  automobile historians and experts. Along the way, he will document the journey while ensuring attention to detail. The goal is to honour his grandfather’s legacy and bring to greater light this significant chapter of Canadian history. With its completion, this tribute automobile will be a tangible embodiment of the first gasoline car built in Canada. There is a growing interest to showcase the completed tribute Fossmobile in classic automobile shows, however it will be eventually donated to a Canadian museum to enhance historic education for future generations.
