    … now with my email-address added …

    In second half of February I sent a comment like this, as well as an email some days later to Scott Carter, both on the subject of photos in the “Nigel Bills Collection”. In this old album we found some very interesting photos of our type 40 Bugatti 1927, which was in the ownership of Nigel Bills ca. 1945-46 and which my wife and I bought from Terry Ireland, Adelaide in 2006. We both wish to supply you with some information regarding this ex-Tasmania Bugatti, and we also have some questions in which you may help.
    Kind regards
    Frank Studstrup
