Before world war two will never come again. The transfer of French "Beauty" of what a Grand Prix machine ought to be to the cold German mentality of aircraft design on wheels. "the slug it to them down the straights" approach of winning is everything. I really love the Bugatti and what it stood for. Like the American "Indian Motorcycle" i hoped it would be "the return of the Naitve" but the days when Grand Prix cars use Tonneau covers to boost their speed is over. When I came of age you could still go to the back of "Road and Track" and there would be the "Bugatti" and at an affordable price. it was still the age of the "Gentleman". Like the Tonneau we are all gone from what was "Gallantry."
