Even though Mr Dupras has retired in 2009, he is still a source of priceless advice and knowledge on automobiles of all kinds. He remains available to share his experience and knowledge with his son and the other evaluators of the enterprise.
Dominic started to follow in his dad’s footsteps at a young age. With his father, they travelled several cities in Canada and the United States in order to find antique vehicles. He would also be found by his father’s side in the family’s garage restoring vehicles. He is still passionate about antique vehicles. He restores them with passion and gives great care to the quality of the restoration. His current project is a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible that he has owned since 1985. He also owns a few other restored antiques and is working on several upcoming projects. History is repeating itself today with not only his son but his daughter as well, spending time in the family garage in order to participate and learn vehicle restoration. It is his turn now to pass on his passion to the next generation. He often has been a judge in automobile exhibitions, and also goes frequently to the big meets in Barrie Ontario, Carlisle Pennsylvania and many others. Mr Dupras also attends regularly I-Car training in order to be up to date in the automotive business.
