That beautiful 1925 Type 23 Bugatti!

Yesterday I shared some iconic hood emblems of three classic cars. The Bugatti really stood out for me. I just love Bugatti!  This beauty can be seen at the Franschhoek Motor Museum in South Africa.

You remember this one:

But it would be so unfair not to show the rest of the car as well…

The Cord 810- Timeless Beauty!

One of South Africa’s best destinations for petrolheads is the Rupert family’s Motor Museum just outside the scenic town of Franschhoek. I had such a fun day with my eldest son, just enjoying the beautiful cars in this magnificent collection.

I would have loved to hear this car start up, and would be in heaven if I could drive it around the block! But seeing it in real life was already a huge thrill!

You can read all the technical data here at wikipedia. I will post one or two more in the coming days of this experience, maybe it will help clear my creative block.
