Delahaye


 

Delahaye produced just the one classic, but frankly it was not necessary to produce another.  The 135 was fortunate to have been dressed by some of the best stylists of all time. My first close encounter with such a car was at Denver, where hidden in a museum was the glorious 135 once owned by the late Dianna Dors (a rather second rate British version of Marilyn Monroe). Ever since that day I have always regarded the 135 as one of the finest automobiles ever built.
