In France in the 1950's
The first one which I wanted to present to you is the Spirou magazine of June 28, 1956, only two days before the French GP race in Reims! There is one page describing the Type 251. Of course, there is some hope that the Bugatti will be playing the role as outsider in the race. As we now know, this was not to be...
Below, the front page of the magazine, and the page (18) with the T251
From Marc Miesyerus I received scans of the October 23, 1958 issue of Tintin. Inside there are 4 pages (4 - 7) with the history of Bugatti, in comic style. Several key moments of the history are beautifully pictured, by Jean Graton, known for the Michel Vaillant comics. One of those is the "Bugatti Case". Enjoy! In French only, so get out your dictionary, if needed!
