The Doors

 
Noooo, not Jim and the boys...
 
Nor this:
 
 
I'm talking about the doors on the ultra rare Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph Park Ward.
Only 124 built...
To quote from the brochure (of which I now have a handful...) :
"Meticulous attention has been devoted to preserving the flow and sweep of the body style line.....
While it is predominantly the rear half of the body shell that has been extended, the effect has been superbly balanced by the extension of both the front and rear doors."
 
Very clever. It fooled me.
There was one in Louisville parked right beside my old thing. It even had Ontario plates.
I thought it looked different from the 'ordinary' Seraph parked nearby...
 
 
The Silver Seraph is really not as large a car as, say the new Phantom.
 
 
You do notice the big doors on the blue car. It's the size the Silver Seraph should've been from the start.
 
 
So here's the brochure:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
It's big.

Even though the Park Ward has more room inside than the Phantom, it possesses that classic Rolls-Royce poise and charm, which the Phantom does not.
