3 Awesome Vintage Cars

Celebrating the premiere of the Czech period drama Ambition, in which a family who owns a car manufacturing company falls into disgrace, we have selected three great vintage cars that made history and became fan favorites!

Bugatti 37A (1928)
A model that came under the umbrella of the Bugatti Type 35, this model was one of the most successful of the Bugatti racing models. Its version of the Bugatti arch-shaped radiator that had evolved from the more architectural one of the Bugatti Type 13 Brescia, was to become the one that the marque is most known for though even in the ranks of the various Type 35s there were variations on the theme.

The Bugatti Type 37 was probably the best car of its day to utilize only 60bhp, but the 37A had a supercharger which increased power up to 20 bhp. Both models were made for voiturette racing and shared much with the legendary Type 35 Grand Prix car.

Ford A (1928)
The Ford Model A, also known the A-Model Ford or the A, and A-bone, was the Ford Motor Company's second market success, after its predecessor, the Model T. First produced on October 20, 1927, but not introduced until December 2, it replaced the venerable Model T, which had been produced for 18 years. This new model was designated a 1928 model and was available in four standard colors. The vehicle was also sold in Europe, but was replaced by local built cars such as the Ford Model Y.

Praga Alfa 15 (1929)
The Praga Alfa was the name used by Praga in Czechoslovakia for one of its principal car ranges. Production started in 1913 and finished in 1942. The Alfa was initially conceived as a cheaper and smaller complement to the Praga Grand and Mignon. The car was first produced in 1913 as a "people's car" for the mass market, combining affordability with reasonable levels of comfort and practicality. The design, developed under the leadership of Frantisek Kec, was traditional, combining a backbone frame with all-independent suspension and a side valve engine. Sales were successful, with all the vehicles produced in the first year sold within the year. Production was halted due to the mobilization that led up to World War I but resumed in 1923.
