Henry Novo of France began working on Bugattis in 1929 when he was 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. He learned as much as he could to be able to fit in with his clientele, to make them feel comfortable leaving their cars in his hands. He read books and newspapers avidly and was careful not to use curse words or vulgar language.
Due to all his hard work and dedicated time in the '20s and '30s, Henry gained customers from all over Europe and was able improved his craft. When ladies came by to visit the cars, they were impressed with Henry, because he dressed himself carefully and nicely compared to the other workers in the shop.
