Henry Novo of France began working on Bugattis in 1929 at age 14. Henry worked very hard so that he could become a racing mechanic—he worked each day beginning first thing in the morning and went late into the evening. Bugatti owners seemed the same then even as now; they were generally rich and well educated. Henri understood this, so he adapted to the part. Eighty-four years and two generations later, he has left a Bugatti legacy.
