Rolling Sculpture + Canada

Looking for something cool to do with the family during the holidays?  Perhaps an activity that has a little Canadian connection?  Look no further than the Museum of Art, which is presenting until January 15, 2017 a stunning exhibition on Art Deco automobiles from the 1930s and ’40s.

Did you know that The Guild of Automotive Restorers in Bradford, Ontario, recreated the long-lost 1935 Bugatti Type 57S Aérolithe displayed in Rolling Sculpture: Art Deco Cars from the 1930s and ’40s?  (The original show car disappeared in the late 1930s and nobody really knows what happened to it, although there are hypotheses flying around.)

Not only did The Guild recreate this fabulous long-lost car; they did so using 1930s materials and techniques! In addition to the same type of magnesium-aluminium panels used by Jean Bugatti back in the day to create the body, they used the oldest Type 57 chassis in existence and three other Bugatti parts–engine, transmission and rear axle. While the front axle is missing, you need three of these five Bugatti parts, to call a Bugatti a Bugatti. They’ve got four. So their recreation is actually a Bugatti… and it has been enthusiastically accepted by the Bugatti Owners Club.  Be sure to read the very informative exhibition label to discover fun details about the original car and the recreation.

CanSouth would like to thank the coordinating curator of the exhibition for sharing the photo of the spectacular Aérolithe. Check the museum website for details about the exhibition.

Jets Games Pics

The Winnipeg game was quite physical and fast-paced having a little of everything. The hit on Tony Enstrom by Canes Brock McGinn in the second period changed the games tempo.  The Jets lost to the Canes 3-1. CanSouth’s Sports Correspondent sent along some photos for your enjoyment!
