Featured is a very Talbot Lago T26 Record, clothed by master coachbuilder Figoni & Falaschi. Like many other luxury cars built in the immediate post-War era, it was sold to the United States. The first owner was Hollywood movie director George Sidney and many believe that Jospeh Figoni's extravagant design was an inspiration for the artists at Walt Disney when they drew cars for their famous cartoons. Sidney eventually sold the car to legendary collector Lorin Tryon. In his ownership, the complex French drivetrain was replaced with an easier to maintain Cadillac V8 engine and a three speed automatic gearbox. Some of the original Jaeger dials were also removed.

A few years ago the current owner bought the car together with the stored six cylinder engine. He delivered the car to RM Auto Restorations, who returned the car to its original configuration. The extensive restoration was completed in time for the owner to show his Figoni & Falaschi Cabriolet at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. Since then, it has been shown at a variety of events including the 2006 Palm Beach International where it is pictured above and took home the 'Best of Show' award.
