Delahaye Type 145

In 1937, a Delahaye 145 backed by a American financer and driven by a French Jew set a new speed record and beat the dominant Germans at the Grand Prix.  By the time Hitler invaded France two years later, and the car had been hidden in a remote mountain cave. Now, fully restored, the Delahaye lives in Oxnard and has returned to racing.
