Evening Program:  Bill Jabs reported that he had recently met up with Bill Price and Matt Hackney in San Francisco to visit the Academy of Arts School there.  The academy was founded and has been in the ownership of the Steven’s family since the early twenty’s and unexpectedly they have a huge collection of fabulous classic cars.  Bill showed about 100 slides of cars that they saw and he and Bill Price told what they had learned about some to the most unique ones.


Bill Jabs said that he was in need of a program for our August meeting.  He adjourned the meeting at about 8:15 pm
