It had the 2300 Ford Pinto engine and the engine looked terrible. I pulled the engine, rebuilt some of the frame, totally rewired the car and put it back together.

My Bugatti Experience

About 2010 I found this Ironsmith Bugatti replica on Craigslist back on the East Coast. Bought it and had it shipped to AZ. It is the only U.S. Bugatti replica with a front engine.

It was a totally impractical car. Fun to drive. AC worked well in the winter and heat worked great in August. I took it to many car shows but you always had to watch the weather to find out whether you could get home before it rained.
