The New York Times printed a story in their Collectible Cars section that was first covered in Automobile Quarterly Magazine about the sale of the John W. Shakespeare collection of rare Bugattis and it’s return home to France. After extended negotiations by Hugh Conway and Bob Shaw, the cars were sold to Fritz Schlumpf and shipped to France to join the Schlumpf Collection.
We think that this remains as one of the great stories of car collecting. You can view the very interesting slide show at the N.Y. Times that shows and tells the intriguing details. Photos by David Gulick courtesy of The New York Times and the newspaper’s Collectible Cars section.
