Thats taking it to a whole other level !... This might be the only prewar Bentley i could have in my garage.. Also some of these races require the vehicle to be american.

Those Bugatti replicas seem to be quite a bit of fun for the money. Doesn’t help your American class racing but would be a hoot for the vintage gatherings.

also not american but this one seemed like a lot of fun for the money with a VSCC registry.

A friend of mine I sail with has a collection of "real deal" Bugatti race cars from the 30's & 40's. He use to race them at classic events now his son does the driving.

Beautiful collection. I think Gooding has one at its auction in Scottsdale this year. This will be my 7th (?) year going down there, its a good way to spend a few days in 70 degree temps around beautiful cars. Just a bunch of guys hanging out and looking at cars we will never be able to afford. He!! of a lot of fun though.

Just a very small section of his large garage. I think he's shown at every concorse d'elegance around the world and has won top car in everything he's entered at least once.

Im a big fan of his jaguars


I keep telling him his collection is seriously lacking in rovers and we could do a trade, so far no luck!
