    If we should give Abraham Lincoln credit for uniting America, then we should give Adolf Hitler credit for uniting Europe, as both men used the same methods for the same goals.

    Old cars are awesome.

    Note: The guy is driving. Those cars required it.

    You weren't buried in a cocoon, all buckled in for saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaafety.

    There's the sound of the engine; the whirr of the gearbox - the wind in your hair.

    Fuck new cars. They are magnificent - but soulless, overbuilt - appliances.

    Not all Type 13s are quite as crude as that tub. For example:

    Most Bugattis are quite small; note the staggered seating in the second image provided by mr.d. (Yes, I've seen a Royale; not small by any measure.)

    Most Bugattis are, by modern standards at least, very very simple. So there's no reason you couldn't make a loosely acceptable replica from junkyard parts and stuff you could get at Home Depot. With a lot of handwork to get that concours finish.

    I would love to see the Schlumpf museum sometime before I die. And/or a Retromobile show in Paris.

    Done Schlumpf, a couple of years after it opened. If you have even the slightest interest in Bugattis it's a must; hundreds of interesting cars of other to see when you get bored with Bugs!

    Retromobile is on my list!
