Today, Heat of a Champion’s Saturday Salute is Economy Nova Scotia’s Burt Fulmore! What Dale Earnhardt is to Nascar, Burt Fulmore is to antique auto restoration in the Maritimes. Burt can easily be referred to as the ‘God Father’ of antique auto restoration. Burt’s life-long love affair with cars & trucks, and particularly Chevy’s, began in the 1930s, living across the road from the community service station in Economy. Burt’s eye for perfection and polish is astounding when you look at all the ‘metal’ he’s owned and restored over the past number of decades. Burt’s love of ‘all things with a bowtie’, has been passed down throughout his family, especially his 4 sons, Jim, David, Doug and Mike; and all race fans! We share a sample of the gorgeous automobiles Burt’s guiding hand helped bring to life. Burt, for all your years of dedication to the many car clubs and antique auto community, you have the Heart of a Champion! Many thanks to the Fulmore family for sharing their photos.
