BEST OF SHOW

Palm Springs, CA

This 1936 Delahaye 135 Competition won its Best in Class and ultimately was judged Best in Show, and was also the People's Choice winner. The French car has magnificent, swooping lines, almost a trademark of many French autos of the time. It's a coupe, and the doors are of the "suicide" type. The car's wire wheels are of the type best kept clean with a toothbrush and dental floss --- and don't laugh; that's exactly how classic vehicle owners deal with their very expensive wire wheels.
