Cool score Old32 , Is that a Delahaye at top of the cover?
Could I be a pain and ask if you can scan that Hot Rod article and the article of that Delahaye (?) if it is featured!
Cheers.

umm ah bugger, imagine what it would be worth now!

ahh ha, that Cadillac was built by Saoutchik Coachbuilders. They did work for Delahaye, Delage, Bugatti. Thats why I thought it looked like a Delahaye

That Caddy next to the Porsche is umm......... who is going to build a Cad like that? I would if I had one.
