Car Stories and Recollections with Irénée du Pont

Curator of Mechanical Exhibitions and Hagley Car Show Chair John McCoy talks with car enthusiast Irénée du Pont. He is a car guy who still has every car he’s ever owned, and each one has many stories to tell. The first story begins on Christmas Eve 1935, two weeks shy of his sixteenth birthday, when he received his first car, a 1936 F-36 Oldsmobile. Hear the stories about the cars that have carried Irénée du Pont through his life.

This talk was held at Hagley's Soda House on March 24, 2016.
