French cars are making a comeback with classic car collectors.
Of course, there have been few vehicles more cherished by collectors than those bodied by such Paris coachbuilders as Figoni et Falachi, Saoutchik, Franay, Pourtout and even by a couple of Americans in Paris, Tom Hibbard and Howard “Dutch” Darrin. Not to mention Jean Bugatti, of Italian descent but working in France, albeit in southeastern France, and keeping the automotive world riveted with vehicles such as his swooping Atlantic.
