WE GET LETTERS: The Magic of a Model Car

atlanticengineRecently, a local customer purchased one of our gorgeous Autoart Bugatti Atlantic Coupes as a birthday gift for his father.  Cars are a multi-generational passion for this particular family, so it was an extreme pleasure to provide what hopefully would to be a home run of a present.  Yesterday, I received the following note from the buyer:


“I wanted to tell you how huge of a hit that Bugatti was.  My father was more than blown away.  He is such a detail-oriented person, he kept moving it to places in the house where he could check it out.  He actually sat in one of the original versions of this car back when he was younger.  Brought back great memories.”

Thanks for the feedback, Mike!  As I’ve mentioned here before, nostalgia plays a huge role in our collective love for model cars, and I’m thrilled that your father enjoyed receiving the Atlantic so much.  Now, can we discuss the amazing fortune he had as a young man to experience one of these mythic machines in person?!
