this is a gorgeous car…

and, had i four and a half million dollars lying around, i’d have been sorely tempted.

the 1937 Bugatti Type 57S “found” in a British garage late last December sold at Bonhams on Saturday for 3.4 million Euros.

i can only hope that the new owner elects to preserve the car, rather than restore it.

yet, for my money, the deal of the sale was this pretty little 1947 Citroen. it was used as a promotional vehicle for Miko ice cream during the 1958 Tour de France (won by Charly Gaul, the “Angel of the Mountains”).

the car sold for a mere €4,600 (a smidge under $6,000 US).
