Dick Wharton / Alfa Romeo 308 (1940)
During the Grand Prix that happened in Alexandria Bay (New York). The 308 was built in 1938 for the 3 liter class, with power output ranging from around 220 to 300bhp.

Compact styling for you and all of your friends.
Lincoln Continental (1940)
This particular example was being modified by Frank Lloyd Wright himself. He wished for a circular window, and he got a circular window.

—Makes sense, doesn’t it?
MG TC (1945)
The TC was the first post-war MG, and coincidence or not, the TC brought some needed changes to the MG lifestyle.
To begin with, the TC was an obvious and no-apologies-for, two seater sports car. There were no optional assets to improve your family Sunday drive experience, the TC was just what it was.
A light body and a 1.2 liter engine meant it was… slow, very slow, actually. Zero to a hundred (kph) took more than 26 seconds, and it stopped its life at around 130kph. But the ride was apparenly quite a bit of fun, which made this TC quite popular from the very beggining.
Delahaye 175S Aerodynamic Coupe (1947)
Design by Figoni & Falaschi, obviously. Only 51 175 were built and despite that, some were used in the 1951 Monte Carlo Rally, which did incredibly well.
1941 Delahaye 135MS
Body and design by the astonishing French coach builder Figoni et Falaschi. Extravagant doesn’t really do it any justice, does it?
Unfortunately, this would be the last (real) model Delahaye produced.
Porsche 356 Gmund (1949)
— There’s a hierarchical tree of epicness concerning classic Porsche’s models.
To begin with, any classic Porsche is cool. Period. Then, there’s Porsches at rally stages: watching a 959 or a 911 getting seriously dirty has a tasteful hint of naughty.
And then there’s this. A 356 Gmund risking its life on a 1949 rally stage (couldn’t figure out where, sorry about that). Just wonderful!
