Monte-Carlo, Monaco - October 2, 2006 (1:38pm)
Gentlemen, start your engines! I guess I have to do that the old-fashioned way with this super Bugatti 35B jalopy, which by the way won the first Grand Prix of Monaco on April 14, 1929. This work of art was created by François Chevalier and inaugurated by Prince Rainer III on May 17, 2001. Every time I saw this awesome car, it reminded me of the song Georges by Sylvie Vartan, a song that could very well have been about me! The lyrics, translated from French to English are: Georges drives a 220-horsepower super Bugatti one evening in Miami. The part about Miami is certainly true as I have lived there since the age of 12. All I have to do now is to get a super Bugatti like this one!
