Rare supercar found in English garage

LONDON – It was the equivalent of finding an old Picasso or an unknown Beatles tape hidden away in your uncle's attic.

Relatives of Dr. Harold Carr found an extremely rare 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante — a Holy Grail for car collectors — as they were going through his belongings after his death.

The dusty two-seater, unused since 1960, didn't look like much in the garage in Gosforth, near Newcastle in northern England.

But only 17 were ever made, and when it's cleaned up and auctioned in Paris next month, experts believe it will fetch at least 3 million pounds ($4.3 million) and possibly much more.

Bugatti once represented the height of motoring achievement. The supercar was so ahead of its time it could go up to 130 mph (209 kph) when most other cars topped out about 50 mph (80 kph).

This particular car is even more valuable because it was originally owned by Earl Howe, a prominent British race car driver, and because its original equipment is intact, so it can restored without relying on replacement parts.

"It has all the finest attributes any connoisseur collector could ever seek, in one of the ultimate road-going sports cars from the golden era of the 1930s," said James Knight, head of the international motoring department at Bonhams, which will auction the car Feb. 7.

Knight and a small number of Bugatti enthusiasts knew of Carr's proudest possession, but not the eight relatives who inherited Carr's estate.

The orthopedic surgeon, who died at age 89, was described by relatives as an eccentric hoarder who never threw anything out. He also left behind an Aston Martin, which was sold, and a Jaguar sports car that was scrapped because it was in such poor condition.

The Bugatti marque is famed for its speed and handling and was a frequent race winner in the 1920s and 1930s. The 57S Atalante was one of its most successful models, each one made by hand with unique details.

The company founded in 1909 by Ettore Bugatti collapsed in the 1940s after a long string of racing victories.

The rights to the legendary Bugatti name were purchased in 1998 by Volkswagen, which has built the Bugatti Veyron, one of the world's fastest and most expensive cars.

Lady Finger For Sugar (Diabetes) Patients

Please note that another name for Lady Finger is "OKRA ".

Last month in one of TV program I learnt of a treatment of Sugar (Diabetes). Since I am diabetic, I tried it and it was very useful and my sugar is in control now. In fact I have already reduced my medicine.

Take two pieces of Lady Finger and remove/cut both ends of each piece. Also put a small cut in the middle and put these two pieces inglass of water. Cover the glass and keep it at room temperature during night. Early morning, before breakfast simply remove two pieces of Lady Finger from the glass and drink that water.

Keep doing it on daily basis.

Within two weeks, you will see remarkable results in reduction of your SUGAR.

My sister has got rid of her diabetes. She was on Insulin for a fewyears, but after taking the Lady Fingers every morning for a few months, she has stopped Insulin but continues to take the Lady Fingers everyday. But she chops the Lady Fingers into fine pieces in the night, addsthe water and drinks it all up the next morning. Please. try it as itwill not do you any harm even if it does not do much good to you, but you have to keep taking it for a few months before you can see the results, as most cases might be chronic...


I have never understood golf courses. They love to send cute chicks around to sell you beer, but if they catch you watering their foliage after you've had 4 or 5 beers, they get their panties all in a twist. As a result, booze loving golfers end up in a jam. You can't pee outside, and you sure as hell can't trek all the way back to the clubhouse to pee inside. Well, the UroClub is here to save the day. The UroClub looks exactly like a 7-iron, but it is hollow and comes with a nice privacy towel. Simply pop the top, attach the towel to your belt, drop your zipper and then get down to business.
