Adams was an American racing car constructor, named after Clyde Adams. Adams had left his native Texas and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 20.[1] Adams started working for Harry Miller, and built a reputation as a first-class metalworker.[1] When Miller's business collapsed in the aftermath of the Great Depression, Adams set up his own business. He worked on a range of Indianapolis 500 vehicles from 1930 to 1950, as well as several speedcars.[1] Adams cars competed in one FIA World Championship race - the 1950 Indianapolis 500.
