Author of The Fate of The Sleeping Beauties, Ard op de Weegh has informed us today that the Bugatti T 57 Coach Ventoux (#57286) featured in that book, which has now been fully restored, has just been bought by the Austrian Museum Automobilmuseum Stainz.
The photos show the three authors (l-r Arnoud op de Weegh, Kay Hottendorff and Ard op de Weegh) of The Fate of The Sleeping Beauties, and Michael Dovaz with the car at a book presentation and the unrestored car as it was in 1999 in the museum of Sarlat, the third photo shows the car in a half restored state.
