A beautiful Bugatti Type 57 with body by Veth & Zn., recently restored in The Netherlands by Hietbrink Coachbuilding (front fenders) and Stolke.
No design drawings or detailed references were available, only some shots from a 16mm film of the car from the family archives, taken in 1940 (2 weeks before WW II). These stills were use by Hietbrink to recreate the front fenders.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
