Younger Relative

I was somewhat amused to find a Silver Spirit on Ebay the same colour as my current favourite T series Bentley.

Yes, that factory veloured honey gold 1974 car at Park Ward Morors in Illinois. Very cool, indeed.
But look at this:

The same, only different.

A good looking car, if you like that sort of thing.

SY to SZ series cars.

The major difference...?

Yeah, I'm crazy - I love the velour (factory only, of course...)
The T is in here:

And the Spirit:

I do like both, but that T is rare enough in itself, even rarer as a factory velour T and it's an SY car.
You've gotta appreciate the seventies...

I know, you've seen this 1980 shot too many times, but here it is again:

It's not me in the shot, but I did take it. Can you imagine these two in Yorkville, Toronto today?
I've got to find myself a pair of flared trousers...
