Terry Cook of Delahaye USA has a long history of involvement with the automotive world. His career in automotive journalism began in 1962 at Drag News, and as Delahaye USA’s website tells us, he moved to the rank of Editor at Car Craft Magazine by the end of his tenure there in 1971.
From there he moved to Hot Rod Magazine, then to Vans & Trucks magazine before creating his own publication and then Appleton Productions. All the while, he’s had a passion for hot rodding, and in the early 1990s, he began creating and manufacturing his own designs through Delahaye USA.
One particular creation is a unique combination of classic designs and Delahaye USA construction: the Bugnaughty.
“Inspired by combining classic Auburn, Delahaye and Bugatti* styling, the Bugnaughty incorporates the timeless designs and features of the world’s most beautiful cars onto a single platform,” describes Delahaye USA’s website. The 1937 Bugatti Type 57S served as the inspiration for the steel grille and shell, as well s the reproduction “Flying Stork” hood ornament. It respectfully pays tribute to the Bugatti name while instilling its own sense of newness and beauty.
