Three engines from 1938. All designed to quietly just do a job - and to rarely be seen by a human being. The first two, Chrysler and Dodge, are American and were grubbily built to a cost to meet a then burgeoning market. The final (French/Italian) is a Bugatti, and was built to have dazzling sculptural beauty - but still, remember, to remain unviewed. This says something.
It probably says woftam. None the less - it is an immensely appealing object.
