Wasn't he the one who started that old joke?:
"How can you say you 'buy high and sell low' and stay in business?"

No idea what it is, but what a magnificent picture for a jigsaw puzzle!

Definitely French, 1930s vintage, probably bodied by Saoutchik, Franay or
possibly Chapron. It's likely a Delage, Delahaye or Talbot-Lago. The French dominated exotic car styling during the 1930s and 40s.
Here's a 1947 Saoutchik Talbot-Lago T126 that looks similar>
You'd get more attention in this than in a Countach.

Very close Andy... It is a 1937 Delahaye 135 Torpedo Cabriolet. It was at The Elegance of Hershey car show this year.

Is that a Saoutchik body?

I'll try the nearside row (L-R):
-VW micro van I forget what they call it
-VW Minivan (not our Routan)
-Skoda Superb wagon
-Mercedes SL (current version).
Next row is a lot harder, is that a Ford F150/250? What's it doing there?
