1952 Allard J2T Roadster -- August 30, 2012

San Francisco's Academy of Art University has a fine collection of classic cars available for study by its design students. They shared the collection at the 2010 San Francisco International Auto Show. After World War II, the British economy was in bad shape, so Sydney Allard designed a roadster to appeal to the American market.  The light, agile J2 proved to be very popular in both the US and Europe.  Using a variety of engines, they did well in competition.  It looks like a fun ride.
