Bill Harrah had some 1,400 vehicles and a few airplanes in his collection in Reno. It was a de-facto National Motor Museum, before there was any real plan to have one, and it was amazing the breadth and quality of it. Then Holiday Inn bought his whole shootin' match, and dumped the big ticket items, like this Bugatti, to make as much as they could off the deal. There's a shadow of it's former glory still in Reno, but it's nothing like it was.
