Pre-war automobiles had a lot to be desired and required a lot of maintenance and technical know how to operate effectively. When you consider that sports racing cars had all the same problems, only magnified, it makes you wonder who were the people who bought these cars? How did they even come to find out about them? The discussion covered all these questions in the “The Country Club Crowd – Advertising the American Sporting Car” Demo Day. The following cars were included in the Demo Day: 1926 Kissel 8-75 Speedster, 1929 duPont Model G Speedster, and the 1933 Auburn V12 12-165 Speedster.
