It's the Rolls-Royce of Bentley websites.

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.
