If you’re ever in Oxnard California, there is one at a place called mullin museum. There’s no signs or marketing that I’ve ever seen. It’s a nondescript building filled with 100’s of millions of dollars worth of cars. Delehayes, bugattis, you name it. They had a eb110ss in there when I went. That’s also where the bugatti that was found in the bottom of a lake is displayed. Or at least it was when I went. Also have the movie car from the movie Sahara, the one that gets shot up in the end. Still has bullet holes and sand all over it. The center piece of the museum is a bugatti 57sc Atlantic. The light blue one. Google 57sc Atlantic and you’ll see pics of the light blue one on a circular platform, that’s the museum. I’m ashamed of this but I went when I was 16 and wanted to make a mark on history so I hopped my dumbass up there, gave it a little lick, and fingered the tailpipe. So I guess I’ve tasted 40m dollars. Tasted dusty and the triple exhaust pipes had a lot of surface rust. Best risk of tetanus ever.
