1937 Delage D6
Since my dad collected classic cars its no suprise that my first car was not an old rusted out Malibu or a hand me down station wagon. It was a pretty rare French Classic. When I was about 8 years old I got bit by a dog. Right on my face! Really. I still have scars to prove it. Anyway a few years later I got an insurance settlement of $775. I was 11 or 12 years old. My dad had a friend with the '37 Delage for sale and some how managed to agree to sell it for $775 :-)
Mine didn't look anywhere near as good as the one in the picture. However over the next year or two I did manage to get the car to run. I tried to teach myself to drive and drove it into the side of the dog pen.
This is a 1938, mine was a '37 but I think nearly identical. (Except this one is in good condition)
Finally after 2 years or so I got a body man that worked for my dad to weld the rusted fender back on to the car. I put an ad in Hemmings Motor News and sold the car for $1500.
That money went to car number 2 ......
