Brooklands Sighting

Okay, this is exciting to me.
 
"The Brooklands is a homage to the Bentley Boys who were victorious on the famous Brooklands circuit."
 
 
Ooops! Wrong Bentley Boys shot..
 
Here we are , the Original Bentley Boys:
 
 
Now the car:
 
 
Until today, would you believe, I had never actually laid eyes on a Bentley Brooklands (The two door, not the eighties four door...)
 
 
Walking the dog through my usual shortcut I stumbled across this one in a parking lot. I couldn't believe my eyes.
A REAL all Crewe Bentley...
 
 
I have always loved this car but never, ever saw one 'in the flesh' no matter what car show I attended or dealer I dropped into.
Maybe it's the only one in Canada?
Anyone...?
 
 
Only 550 built apparently.
 
 
Here's what Marinus has to say:
 
 
 
What would we do without camera phones?
 
 
Today I felt the way I felt way back in 1976 when I spotted and photographed 'my' first Rolls-Royce Camargue....
 
 
 
It never wears off.
 
 
Even the wheels amazed me. I had no idea it's an alloy wheel with an aluminium disc fitted.
 
 
Now if we could just 'photoshop' an RR grille onto one of these...
 
I had a good day today.
Cars can do that.

This is definitely not the only one in Canada. Here in Vancouver there's at least one around - I've seen it on the road a few times. I believe it belongs to a prominent real estate developer here.

There is also a Black one in the West end of Toronto - I met they guy that owned last year at Humbertown. SO there are a few around.
