great vintage road and race cars, in one magazine Vintage Roadcar / Vintage Racecar (they just merged into one magazine)


the two stand out feature articles in this issue were the incredibly rare and original fall factory "works"race Bugatti Type 39, only 5 were made, #4604 was shipped to Australia in 1926. The new owner wanted to try for land speed records




I don't think I've seen a Moto Meter without the circle filled in



And the 2nd article was a multi page interview with Parnelli Jones, mostly about the Indy 500

  1. Actually the failure in Jones' turbine was a small, app. 6" long, drive shaft for the fuel pump. BTW, I built the fuel controls for those cars at Bendix in South Bend.
