Dr. Simeone explained that from 1915 to 1920 the concept of a sports car was submerged by the rigors of a great world war. Coming out of this tragedy a few car companies early on made a true sports car where speed and sport supervene over practicality. A British, an Italian, and an American example of this early reversion to performance were demonstrated. Featured were the 1921 Vauxhall 30/98E Velox Tourer, 1924 Lancia Lambda Third Series Tourer, and the 1922 Paige 6-66 Daytona Speedster.
