  4. The old British Rollers are much more elegant. Since BMW bought the company, they look more and more like Panzer tanks.

  5. One of our uncles married into an English family. They drove Rolls Royces. Back in the early ‘70’s I visited them in North Foreland, Broadstairs etc. It was one of those English addresses; all names, no numbers. After my visit the lord of the manor drove me to the channel ferry in a beautiful white Rolls adorned with discreet red pinstripes. Yes, I was impressed. But my chauffeur seemed most proud, not of his car, but of one of its features. It was something that any American high schooler with a part time job in a grocery store would, at that time, have had in their GTO. “Very nice,” I said, when he proudly slipped a tape into his 8 track deck.

    1. When I was in first grade and my father was stationed out of Norfolk on the Boston, I went to Norfolk Academy. My mother talked a teacher into giving me a lift to and from school. So Elliott Wilkinson picked me up and dropped me off with his maroon 1928 Rolls. Imagine that at a decidedly low brow apartment in 1955! What a wonderful car, wonderful man, and bizarre memory.

  6. Read The Old Boston Post Road by Stephen Jenkins. Interesting stuff. You'll probably look at it a lot differently afterward.
