The 'Found in Vietnam' Bugatti Type 40

Vietnam Bugatti

Chrisso Rheault: "Here are two pictures of the type 40, the first as found in Saigon. The second shortly after restoration was finished. The license number, CD 601 is the original registration where CD stands for Cochin China, the classification of Vietnam as a French colony. My father and a friend had word of the car and his friend bought it, but he had already acquired a running type 57 and was about to be reposted so sold the 40 to my father. He kept the car until his death at which time the friend bought it from us. Some day I hope to get it back in the family (part of why I recently sold the T13 pictured on your website)."

Th. Schneider post

Th. Schneider post
Dear Editor,

I maintain a register of surviving Th. Schneider cars and the car you featured is on the register. At this link http://thschneider.org/register/ 
Of interest for the post is the attached image of Domain Motors during the 1920s. I estimate around 1924 or 1925. The occasion looks to be celebrating an around Australia event in a Rugby motor car but in the showroom on the right hand side is a Th. Schneider. Not very clear but the radiator shape is definitive. As is the Th. Schneider poster in the window.
The building is long gone sadly and indeed the whole street-scape seems to have changed.
Regards
Marc Fellman
   

Hispano-Suiza Jaeger clock

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Hispano-Suiza Jaeger clockA few years ago, my mothers french grandfather passed away. He didn´t leave much behind to my mother, but in a box she found this clock, and gave it to me since I´m interested of everything that moves. I almost forgot I had it, until i found it a few days ago, I tried to search on the net, but i didn't find a lot about Hispano-Suiza instrumentation. Does anybody here know how old this clock might be? Or what car model it comes from? The clock itself is mecanically in excellent condition, little bit dust here and there though.


editor: dear Christin, this kind of clock made by Jaeger is typical for many French quality cars in the twenties. But the fact that it is marked with Hispano Suiza makes is extra attractive.
