And a rare two tone here:

Fixed Head Coupé

Yes, they are known as FHC....
 
FHC, also seen in every building foyer.
 

Sorry, not the Fire Hose Cabinets...
 
What a name.
 
But Holy FHC! We love them!
 
Silver Cloud III MPW FHCs....
 

 

 
New Phantom FHCs:
 

 
 And now this nice one.
 
 
A Canadian car.
 
 
Rodd Sala has it.
 
 
Unmolested, all original (including Factory blow ins (common) ). Never redyed leather....
I have known this car for years....
 

FHC'n lovely....
 
 
 
 
 
 
Not restored, so a few cracks in the wood, original...!
 
 
A stunning example....
 
 
Watch the video.
 
 
I love this car.

Rolls-Royce Wraith: Silent Running

Here is a very good review of the Rolls-Royce Wraith.

Please all go out and buy one. Now.



Because in 20 years time I want to buy one for 10% of it's initial purchase price.

A Fact

This was on a car window at the National Meet. Yeah, and that's me....

 
 


 
 


 
 


    


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


 
 


Enough said.

Flying Cars

Concours cars being prepped at the RROC meet in Pennsylvania last month.


 
 


You must have axle stands.

 
 



 
 


That's too much for me....

What happens if it rains?

 
 


I'd cry.

"Gotcha!"

Those bloody Gatso Cameras....

 
 



 
 

Gotcha in yer Silver Ghost....!
25 mph....

 
 


 
 


I guess the Red Flag Law no longer applies to old cars...


 
 



The Law:
"Firstly, at least three persons shall be employed to drive or conduct such locomotive, and if more than two waggons or carriages he attached thereto, an additional person shall be employed, who shall take charge of such waggons or carriages :
Secondly, one of such persons, while any locomotive is in motion, shall precede such locomotive on foot by not less than sixty yards, and shall carry a red flag constantly displayed, and shall warn the riders and drivers of horses of the approach of such locomotives, and shall signal the driver thereof when it shall be necessary to stop, and shall assist horses, and carriages drawn by horses, passing the same,

The Red Flag Law was repealed in 1896, by which time the internal combustion engine was well into its infancy."



Those were the days. Can you imagine...?

 
 



Now we have speed cameras.

Birdviews

I've been having a bit of fun lately spotting Bentleys & Rolls-Royces from a window high above in Toronto.


 

Not great shots as most were taken with my Blackberry camera but interesting. It is surprising just what I have seen from the window.

 

 

How about a nice Azure weaving through the construction.

 

 

Lots of Continental GTCs and GTs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Continental Flying Spur


 

A nice Continental (Corniche style).


 

Goodwood cars:

Ghost.

 

 

 Phantom

 


 Newer Phantom


 

'Pimped' Phantom


 

Another Phantom



And the ultimate. A FHC Phantom - super rare here.

 

 

 I do have more...
