    Seen here in the Alfa he drove in the '36 Vanderbilt cup. I think that car has been mentioned on here recently.It was owned by Enzo Ferrari.

    Thanks for posting the films where we could see them. I scan youtube almost every day and just happened to run across them. I won't comment on the Mustang, most of my vehicles don't classify either. :)

    I have posted some new videos at:
    http://www.vanderbiltcupraces.com/index.php/blog/category/videos

    Recent additions include newsreels from the 1915-1916 Vanderbilt Cup Races and the 1937 George Vanderbilt Cup Races held at Roosevelt Raceway on Long Island.

    I have also included a video of the 1904 #6 Pope-Toledo participating in the 2004 Vanderbilt Centennial Celebration held in Garden City, New York. In the 1904 Vanderbilt Cup Race, the original 24-HP Pope-Toledo finished a surprising third.

    Enjoy!
