1937 Bugatti Atalante 57S discovered in lock up
Although collectors worldwide knew the whereabouts of this car, the owner, reclusive Dr Harold Carr, refused to listen to offers for it, instead in 1960 he locked it away in his garage never to be seen again for almost 50 years





The one and only Bugatti Aerolithe
David Grainger, co-founder of Bradford, Ontario's Guild of Automotive Restorers, wasn't sure what to do with Bugatti chassis #57104 when he first got his hands on it—until he heard about the legendary Aerolithe. The Jean Bugatti-designed "Electron Coupe" -- so named because it was bodied in a magnesium alloy called "Electron" -- mysteriously disappeared shortly after its 1935 debut at the Paris Salon. That mystique made it the perfect candidate for an exacting five-year-long recreation performed using only period-correct materials and methods. Thanks to the Guild of Automotive Restorers for access to this incredible machine.





Customized Cars from the Past
Check out my web site "Rides": https://sites.google.com/site/myvetts/home For more videos of "Low Riders":https://sites.google.com/site/slammedbelow/ A development of hot rodding, the change in name corresponded to the change in the design of the cars being modified. The first hot rods were pre-World War II cars, with running boards and simple fenders over the wheels. Early model cars (1929 to 1934) were modified by removing the running boards and either removing the fenders entirely or replacing them with very light "cycle fenders". Later models usually had "fender skirts" installed on the rear fenders. Many cars were "hopped up" with engine modifications such as adding additional carburetors, high compression heads and dual Exhausts. "Engine swaps" were done, the object of which was to put the most powerful engine in the lightest possible frame and body combination. The suspension was usually altered. Initially this involved lowering the rear end as much as possible with the use of "lowering blocks" on the rear springs. Later cars were given a "rake job" either adding a "dropped" front axle or heating front coil springs to make the front end of the car much lower than the rear. Much later some hot rods and custom cars swapped the old solid rear axle for an independent rear axle, often from Jaguar. Only rarely was the grille of one make of car replaced by another; one exception was the 1937 Buick grille, often used on a Ford. (In the 1950s and 1960s, the grille swap of choice was the 1953 De Soto.) The original hot rods were plainly painted like the Model A Fords from which they had been built up, and only slowly begun to take on colors, and eventually fancy orange-yellow flamed hoods or "candy-like" deep acrylic finishes in the various colors. With the change in automobile design to encase the wheels in fenders and to extend the hood to the full width of the car, the former practices were no longer possible. In addition, there was tremendous automotive advertising and subsequent public interest in the new models in the 1950s. Hence custom cars came into existence, swapping headlamp rings, grilles, bumpers, chrome side strips, and tail lights, as well as "frenching" and "tunnelling" head- and taillights. The bodies of the cars were changed by cutting through the sheet metal, removing bits to make the car lower, welding it back together, and adding a lot of lead to make the resulting form smooth (hence the term "lead sled"; lead has been replaced by Bondo). By this means, "chopping" made the roof lower; "sectioning" made the body thinner from top to bottom. "Channeling" was cutting notches in the floorpan where the body touches the frame to lower the whole body. Fins were often added from other cars, or made up from sheet steel. In the custom car culture, someone who merely changed the appearance without also substantially improving the performance was looked down upon.

The last Horch
In western Texas of all places, Audi finds the last Horch, and ships it back to Germany for a 2-year restoration. Audi is the Latin translation of Horch, and Audi was founded in 1910 by a Horch business partner who was forced out. In 1932, Audi and Horch merged, along with DKW and Wanderer, and the current day Audi logo (four rings) came about. Horch brand was tainted by the fact that many of the Nazi and SS leaders drove Horch during the war. The last remaining civilian models, built pre-1940, are rare collector's gems. The last Horch was built in 1953 by hand, based on a chassis manufactured in 1939. www.ReviewCars.com

1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule so cool! Gangster?
https://www.youtube.com/user/MustangConnection1 Far from a Mustang but way too cool not to post. 1936 Cadillac V-16 Seven-Passenger Limousine Bullet Proof Barn Find! Time Capsule soo cool! Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission Special build limo with inch thick glass and carefully drilled gun ports in front, side and back windows In deteriorated condition and ready for a complete full restoration Chassis no. 5100136 Body Style 6075 Body no. 356 Series 60. 452-cid, 185-hp OHV V-16 engine, three-speed manual transmission, coil spring independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel vacuum-assisted mechanical drum brakes. Wheelbase: 154-inches. At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it gets more and more curious. The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number 356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21, 1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to history. The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they sometimes wore.
