Baxter, John. Mythmaker: The Life and Work of George Lucas. New York: Spike Books, 1999. ISBN 0-380-97833-4. Caption 2: The top is made of curved plexiglass and it is difficult to distinguish the top from the windshield. Note the hubcap sitting on the space behind the seats, supposedly indicating the position of the spare tire. The 1940s atmosphere in this film is very good and the old music is fun to hear, too. The cinematography is great, too, with some tinted vintage-type color at times. It looks wonderful on DVD.

This exhaustive book looks chronologically at Ian Walkers life, the cars he built and raced, and the people that were part of his great adventure during the heady period of the 60's, a time that began the transformation of motor racing into the business it has since become. Our first glimpse of this car came from readers who alerted us – more than once – to an ad that appeared in Hot Rod Magazine in July, 1960.

The owner of the farm had broken his arm, and this Bugatti was buried in the garage, surrounded by all these other priceless cars. I said, “We gotta get the Bugatti out of here!” Schumacher, Michael.
