    Elephant

    im trying to figure out what this car is, i saw it on a show about the pebble beach concours d' elgegance and i was wondering what it is'


    its very long, very old,. very black, has a gold elephant head on the hood (about a 10foot hood) i described it to my dad and he said maybe its a packard


    any help and pictures would be much appreciated

    well, bugs usually had the elephant. did the grill have the horseshoe shape of all bugattis?

    i'd say go throught ucp's bugatti page, they have a decent listing of em.

    Very big with a golden elephant ornament has to be one of the Bugatti Royales. Mind you all of them are different.
    If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.

    Are you SURE this isn't it? Sure sounds to me quite like what you explained...
    if it isn't it, there must be a copycat around :mysterious:
