Speed Queens in the pre-war era drove a tough road to win the right to compete against men in the popular automotive racing circuit. It wasn’t until 1932 when men and women were officially allowed to compete against one another at the Inter-Club Race. Racing then became very interesting indeed with many women blowing the doors off their male racing counterparts leaving sweet pea flowers trailing in their contrails.
Here racing legend Margaret Allan is shown behind the wheel of a 6.5 liter Bentley at Brooklands in 1936. For all women in motorsports racing, may the force be with you.

In anticipation of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Car Culture has created a duPont Motors Pinterest Board. Here, we’ve curated some examples of the few remaining 537 produced motorcars built by the venerable duPont Motor Manufacturing Company of Wilmington, Delaware.

You can also contribute directly to this board by becoming a Car Culture collaborator on this Pinterest group board dedicated to DuPont Motor Manufacturing.

If you are planning on attending the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance next weekend, you can select your best duPont photos and post them to our group collaboration duPont Pinterest board. Car Culture will then ruthlessly edit and annotate the cars so that everyone can experience the duPont automobiles even if you were unable to attend the Concours.

Sign up to become a DuPont collaborator by emailing Car Culture at customerservice@carculture.com. We will then authorize you to pin directly to the Car Culture Pinterest duPont board.

Be creative in your photography and help annotate the history surrounding this interesting American automotive marque.
