T (Not tea) & Caramilk.



Soft on the inside, hard on the outside....Yum....






A lovely 1974 Bentley T I had the pleasure to drive this past weekend.






We even took it to the airport.




Nice, nice, nice.


Soft on the inside.....?




Original Factory soft. I love it!

Black Cloud




It all began very early last Saturday morning with a 1,000km road trip.

Toronto, Canada to northern Illinois, U.S.A. in my forty year old Crewe product.




Off to visit my pal Rodd Sala in Illinois.




A long, long drive for my Old Thing, but well worth it.




No issues at all. "Atta Girl...!" What a great car.




Lots of lovely stuff at Park-Ward Motors. I could stay there forever -  but my wife won't let me....




I had a bit of fun in the early evening with a black Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud just as the sun was setting.








The car.




A lovely car....








Good night sun....






Then off to Walgreens' (to develop my  film ?)






Or should I say WalgRReens'....?

Cinnabar

This 1992 Rolls-Royce Corniche III Convertible was recently advertised by luxury and sportscar specialist William Loughran of Walmer Bridge near Preston in the UK.
 
Its painted in vermillion with a magnolia hood and magnolia leather with red piping and had covered just 12,770 miles from new at the time of sale.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm not normally keen on loud colours, but this car is magnificent!

FAN 700M

 
This rather nice 2003 Rolls-Royce Phantom has the UK registration "FAN 700M"... 
 
 
Get it?
 
 
Repeat slowly...
 
"FAN700M"
 
"PHANTOM"
 
I guess its a fun plate...
 
 
But I wouldn't pay money for it!
 
If you would, both car and plate are for sale...

Ken Spots

Well our honorary Bentleyspotter  (RR too) Kenjonbro has been in the traffic again.

Here's a nice Silver Shadow II impersonating my Old Thing. Looks like Cardinal red.






And this lovely S3:






Modern cars. A Continental Flying Spur.




A GTC.




And a newer Continental GT.




"Put your foot down and don't spare the horses...!"




Thanks to Kenjonbro.

Whitewalls.

Whitewalls are 'In' again.

No, not 'Whitehall......'





White Wall Tyres.


Rolls-Royce is offering their new 'PinstripeTyre' for the phantom.



 

OMG! It looks amazing!


In their words:


"The new Pinstripe Tyre delivers an elegant touch to Phantom"


"A combination of contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship, the Rolls-Royce Phantom embodies timeless elegance with an unmistakable presence. And now, we provide the opportunity to add another edge to this extraordinary car. Taking its inspiration from the world of fashion where an accessory is a stylish complement, the new Pinstripe Tyre delivers an elegant touch to Phantom.

In celebration of its launch, we commissioned acclaimed milliner, Rachel Trevor-Morgan, to express her creative interpretation of the Pinstripe Tyre in a one-off design. Having designed hats for royalty, Rachel has become renowned for her beautiful hand-crafted work and meticulous attention to detail. Just as our Bespoke team can spend up to a month creating the exquisite wood veneers for our car interiors, Rachel and her team craft every detail of her hats to perfection.

With the luxurious boutiques of London's Sloane Street as a backdrop, we have captured the visual harmony between the new Pinstripe Tyre and the bespoke hat. Just as Rachel's creation complements the outfit, the Pinstripe Tyre accentuates the stylish presence of Phantom."


Oh yeah, baby. Whitewalls are back...
