Car Club, 1952
JPL car club, 1952

Members of the JPL Motorsport Club held a sports car exhibition on the lab in August 1952. There are several MG and Hillman Minx cars, a Triumph, a Crosley Hot Shot and a 1928 Model A Ford. Many of the people who fabricated prototype spacecraft and test models during the week worked on their "earth vehicles" at night and on weekends.
