Dave Greenblatt

Dave Greenblatt in 1960 at St. Eugene with Gorries Chev Corvette.

Inducted 1998

Dave Greenblatt was the constructor of a series of fiercely fast Dailu specials that were driven by Dave, John Cannon and Peter Lerch. The Dailu Mk I was built in 1961-62 by Dave, Luigi Cassiani and Mike Saggers. It was exceptionally fast, if not always entirely reliable. But when it was running, it was the match of anything on the racetrack, including Lotuses, Ferraris, Porsches and Chaparrals. There followed three more Dailus, all with monster V8s and all with blinding speed.

    Has anyone seen Dave’s racing scrapbook as it is truly amazing. Pics of his Cobra (the first to be imported to Canada from the UK !) His Ferrari GTO 250 and of course his own cars.I had the pleasure to work with Dave in the film industry in Toronto. The stories on building those cars is quite amazing considering the Italian man didn’t speak a lot of English and all the chassis measurements were done with a pack of cigarettes
