No voice over. No host in your face. Nothing but the cars you want to see, in glorious high-definition video. Today's subject is the 1937 Delahaye 145 Franay Cabriolet. Enjoy.
Malcolm S. Pray Jr was a known entity in the American automotive scene. He owned the largest Audi and Saab dealership in America, presided over several dealer councils and had a considerable classic car collection. Sadly, Pray passed away this past August, and his family has consigned 17 of his beloved cars to RM Auctions - most notable among them this beautiful Delahaye roadster.
Los Angeles's Petersen Automotive Museum this week will debut an exhibit dedicated to early versions of what were thought to be aerodynamic cars, the New York Times reports. The cars may not have cut the wind as well as the designers intended, but some of them sure were beautiful.
Delahaye USA has been at work developing and building the Bella Figura, a modern tribute to the Bugatti Type 57S, for more than three years. The company has finally (mostly) finished the prototype, and presented it to the public for the very first time at this year's Quail Motorsports Gathering.
We've been big fans of the Mullin Automotive Museum ever since it opened its doors over a year ago. The Oxnard, California shrine to French Art Deco automobiles should be on the must-visit list for any enthusiast.
