Beautiful Chav!!  My favorite of the Talbot's is the 1939 Talbot-Lago 150 C-SS Pourtout Coupe. I LOVE the one on an old poster of Roederer Champagne in a wine color. I have never seen one in that shade and believe it was a printer's fantasy.

@perrone1 I love those French posters that fuse Art Deco with Art Nouveau.

And especially if they have a touch of Art Car'o or Art Aut'eau

@chav WOW! I had no idea you speak fluent French. That's one more feather in your cap as our resident Renaissance Man. LOL

More '37 TL. Looks like 14 were produced.

Visited Mullin's Museum last March. Did bunch of quick flash pictures, mostly for my reference; had to see and photograph most of the cars in few hours, so I didn't try hard enough to take pretty pictures.

I believe this is the same car photographed by Tony in 2000 and hence the one replicated by Motor City USA.

Yep; that's it Chav. Interesting story that I told here right after the show. As I leaned in on the driver's side to take some shots, a man was leaning in on the passenger's side (left). As I snapped away, he remarked, "Beautiful car isn't it?" I replied and for a couple seconds as I photographed, we exchanged pleasantries. I then looked up at him, over the car's roof thereafter, and said, "Oh Hi. You're Jay Leno." He smiled.

One is coming up for auction .... https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo22/monterey/lots/d0009-1938-talbot-lago-t150-c-ss-teardrop-coupe-by-figoni-et-falaschi/1234021

It seems that is the Turkey car, I thought it was black, I believe I took pictures of it on Concours D'elegance several years ago, have to find these pics...

PS: Reading the story ... that car was never owned in Turkey
