Rolls Royce Foundation of the USA in Carlisle

Here is some cheap TV of a tour of the Rolls Royce Foundation of the USA in Carlisle.

I'll have to go one day.

Bentley Bentayga off road training

Here is an on board view of some Bentley Bentayga off road training provided by Bentley.

I'm looking forward to my first ride in one. Hopefully soon they will hit Australia.

Here is some more footage from the day.

It has all the expected features including self parking, great for the school run or shopping.

The new Bentley Mulsanne long wheel base

Here is some spy video of the upcoming facelifted Bentley Mulsanne and more interestingly the new Bentley Mulsanne long wheel base.

It may be called the Bentley Mulsanne L, but it is a guess.

I do like the rear sunroof on the LWB car. It looks like an 8-10" stretch in the rear door.

It's hard to tell the font re-design, the bumpers are new - but not sure how the lights will turn out.

Pan Am

Remember Pan American Airways, commonly known as Pan Am, and once the largest international airline opertating from the US?

Well, this period photo of a Silver Shadow Drophead by MPW appears to have been taken outside of the London Pan Am flight center:

Can anyone identify the precise location?

Was the car's owner booking a flight to New York?

Perhaps, but the yellow headlights suggests this Rolls-Royce and its owner probably spent most of their time in France....

Getting Old

I love it when I come across cars that I spotted way back in the late 'seventies and early 'eighties that are still around today. Usually just Silver Shadows and Camargues, but here's something really old.

I have just discovered that this rather splendid old 1927 Phantom I photographed (35mm film) way back in 1983 parked on a street in London is part of a wedding hire fleet called 'Golddrive Chauffeur Services'.

The plate is not visible on their website.

But another shot reveals that it IS that very car. 'YU8487'.

To see a car like this parked on the streets when I saw it in 1983 is like seeing a 1960's car today. 

Never mind the car, this makes ME feel old....

See it here:

Check them out. They have quite the fleet.

New Bentley Motors building, Toronto, Canada.

Toronto's Bentley and Rolls-Royce dealership 'Grand Touring Automobiles' is finally getting a new home.

The old location on Dupont Street is just too small now.....

Now a new 141,000 square foot dealership is under construction on Dundas Street East. It will house Grand Touring's other premium brands too. 
Bugatti, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Landrover/Range Rover and Jaguar.
It will be the largest luxury car dealership in Canada with five floors and rooftop parking. Three separate showrooms and thirty nine service bays with 100 employees.

The groundbreaking ceremony was this past summer. Bentley's Paul Heenan  (third from left) and Rolls-Royce's Gerry Spahn (last on right) were there with the other brands' reps and their shovels.
Dig deep lads....

Well, I fly by there every day in my (imaginary) private plane, so I can give updates on the progress.

Hammering in the 100 foot pilons:

Erecting the crane:

I will update the progress as it goes on.

And I do hope my Old Thing and I will be invited to the official opening in 2017.

Another 'Cover Girl'

Well, the colours are close.....

So to celebrate the New Year my 'new' Old Girl is on the front of the Upper Canada Region's regional RROC publication.

Yes, with her current chrome grille 'photoshopped' to show the way she was originally factory ordered (in 1974)  with it painted body colour - just like the new Bentley Mulsannes that came out in the early 1980s. Years ahead of her time.

Now if only spring could come soon so I can start driving her again. 

Just three more months.....

"Shhh...She's sleeping..."
