WPC National Meet
Saturday's Show Judged a Winner

It didn't take very long to realize that there would be tough competition for most of the classes at the WPC Natonal Meet, held July 17 in Akron, OH. Many high-quality restorations were among the 170 cars  present. As indicated in last year's coverage, I like to concentrate on Forward Look era cars (1955-1961).
