This 1925 Bugatti Brescia was found in a state of profound neglect in a garage, and was auctioned off for almost a million dollars. It’s a beautiful work of art. It doesn’t run, but still…that would be a fine vehicle for a Sunday drive, once it’s restored.
But it’s the wrong model! Way, way back in high school, I was really into technical drafting, and I ran across this one legendary Bugatti, and I made it the subject of my class project: drawing scale 3-views, engine diagrams, isometric projections, all that kind of stuff, for a portfolio which, sadly, I no longer have. It’s been a while.
But for a while there, I was in nerd love with the Bugatti Model 100.
Isn’t that gorgeous? It’s a pre-WWII racing plane that got shelved by the war and never flew. There’s a project in the works to reconstruct one, but as far as I know, it hasn’t got off the ground yet.
Anyway, check your garages. If you’ve got a Bugatti 100 moldering in there, let me know, and I’ll take it off your hands. I don’t have a million dollars, but I might be able to (checks bank account, pats pockets, looks under sofa cushions) cough up a few hundred dollars, easy.
Wait, part of that will have to go to learning how to fly. So some money, anyway.
