    Those art deco Bug's are just stunning, but there's the middle class model. Bristol with a design pinched from pre war BMW I think

    That's about a 48 model I think Jeff .

    My only experience with a Bugatti was a very basic 4 cylinder or unknown model fitted with an Australian made body. A pleasant little car but not what you think of when you think "Bugatti" !

    Here's a car I lusted over as a young man. 1923 Riley Redwing. All engine and fuel tank, with a couple of seats stuck on the back as an afterthought - "Oh yeah, the driver".

    We had some kind of Austin 7 Rally here recently and I saw a little cavalcade passing by including 4 or 5 boat tailed specials.

    Well, if we're talking about stripped down 'economy models', how about the Clisby Special, a feature at Sth Aust hill climbs in the 1950's.



    And the 24 cyl engine?

    I don't know how CAMS would feel about it these days.

    That was Briggs Cunningham's first effort at Le Mans, he came back two years later with his C4R.

    Everything about the Alfa Rome 8C's were works of art, from the chassis to the body to the engine. In their time they were the dominate sports racing cars.
