It’s back-to-school time, and for us, time to give a quick overview of JWA Classic latest news: an update on Soft Auctions and the two cars that are currently on sale, but also some news from the collection of JWA Classic cars and restorations in progress
Last but not least: four of JWA Classic’s cars will be presented at the Epoqu’auto show in Lyon in November!
