Bugatti tour

Strictly by chance, I happened to see the Bugatti Club's "take off" from Las Vegas, Nv this morning (Aug. 24). Members from eight countries started off from San Francisco, drove to Oxnard, and had their cars transported to LasVegas to avoid driving in desert heat. They are headed to Zion nat'l park, and on a north-easterly course for Loveland Colorado.

This is the first time I've seen a Bugatti outside a museum, and it was a real treat to see the cars, some of 'em in well-used, original condition, rust, grease, impressive engines sounding a bit like a threshing machine, but all with a characteristic "trackside whine" when wrapped up. These guys DRIVE !

While I'm commandeering the forum, I'll introduce myself as a kid of 17 somehow trapped in a 62 year-old-body. I grew up cobbling Model T Fords together . . . in those days, you could scrounge enough rust out of the sage-brush to build a car . . . and finally graduated to "big cars". I own a '37 Packard 1500 (original condition driver - I've put 38k mi. on her myself) and I've been fiddling with a 1922 Packard 126 for nearly 20 years now . . . I almost have a running chassis, and need a swift kick to get back to work on her.

Where's all the interest in the really old iron, these days ? Guys ? You out there ??
