About the author (2009)

Jean-François Bouzanquet lived in a family where automobile was spelled with a capital A. A lifelong collector and racing driver in historic competitions, he had the good fortune to rub shoulders with such "goldmines of memory" as Jaques Potherat, Marc Nicolosi, Jean-Louis Moncet and Johnny Rives, who were to inspire in him a love of history.
