Dr. Simeone discussed the difference between a sports car which was made to look beautiful and one which was made to perform? The distinctions are less blurred nowadays because race cars are so different, but what were the differences in the early days when racing a sports car was a luxury. Featured cars were the Packard Gentleman’s Roadster, Hudson Mile-a-Minute Roadster, 1929 DuPont Model G Speedster, and the 1929 DuPont Le Mans Speedster.
