There's an interesting book called the bugatti hunter - that seems to capture the way now significant cars were forgotten by a lot of people. A lot of interesting barn finds and so on. I think at one point the author was running several T57s.

George J It is a neat story about how the car was used. Ken Schaff owned BAT 7, I believe, for a number of years and drove it as his daily driver. I also know a couple of different guys that both drove their 250LM Ferraris as their daily drivers. My SZ has graced the parking lots of Mollie Stones, Safeway, Blockbuster, and Home Depot, however I am sure it does not attract even the smallest fraction of attention a BAT would (for me a very good thing).
