YAK Car Pic of the Day

39 Delahaye 165 Figoni et Falaschi Cabriolet

If you think I’m going out in this weather looking for old cars to photograph, you’re nuttier than I am! So here, from the 2006 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, is another boat of a car: a 1939 Delahaye 165 Figoni et Falaschi Cabriolet. If you’re looking at this early in the morning, you may want to have your coffee before trying to pronounce that name. You may remember earlier in the week we had another Delahaye here — the French manufacturer which started building cars back in 1894. Compare this car’s styling to what we see on today’s roads. These things were literally pieces of art! Today’s cars? Not so much; especially when from a block away they all look the same. Ugh.
