So, there it was, in SUN 5/9/10 L.A. Times,
an article about a large private automobile
collection, in Oxnard, CA.

The collector, Peter Mullin by name, recognized
that the submerged remains of a car was worthy
of preserving in its as-recovered condition, as
part of his 100-car collection.

Now, why would somebody do such a thing?

"It's the beauty from the deep....you can't
possibly improve on it. How could you replace
that patina?"

....talk to Ultra-None, about that, I guess.

It's french, so it was junk when it was built. No real loss there.

Ettore was EYE-talian by birth, but built his cars in the Alsace region of Francia.

So, the fact that this car is French makes Ms. Belvie even more worthy of preservation, as-was!

Oh, well; we'll always have Paris--I mean: TULSA!

Same thing, right?

In small words: Ms. Belvie shoulda been kept as dug up.

Don't forget "Cadillac"!! (Chrysler has Swiss origins)

Here's a video I found of the '25 Bugatti, and a further explanation of the story:

Krazy U-ropeans!

Now, who would ever want to see a derelict car (that obviously is "rusting-to-dust", as 'they' said, about Ms
Belvie, after her long bath), being in such a condition as that ?

If only the City's Fathers/Mothers had had a sense of marketing, and a sense of humor, they would
have bought the remains from the Winning Family, and preserved Ms Belvie as the Midwest's
"Leaning CAR of Tulsa".
