Default Rolls royce concours - 2011

It was nice to meet up with fellow topklasse members SEL69L, Michel, CraigS and of course, BenzBoy, now president of the Rolls Royce Owners Club. There were, as per usual, some very desirable cars on display, and my favourite was this Rolls Royce Convertible, with the 'Chinese' twin headlight arrangement - very rare, and desirable. Okay, before I TRY and go on with this thread, Norton Security installed itself on my computer - for the first time in eight years, and it took all my guile and effort to uninstall it. Anyway, that's by the by. Now, those Rolls Royce pictures......









the next is of Michel's Silver Spur.......very, very nice.......





This one was just pure magic - a beautiful modern "RED' - maybe not original but who cares....










This one somewhat less flamboyant, but still...........





Just to give you an idea what was on display. Regards Styria

Indeed it was a nice day, although the weather was playing hide and seek early. (I rain and you dry your car and as soon as you finish, I'll rain again... )

Ahemm, where are the pics Godfather

It is just as well we all have different tastes - I was commenting to Michel that the Chinese eye headlight car was probably my least favourite - I don't care how desirable they are.

You shouldn't rush me, my son - I actually had to uninstall Norton Security - it actually froze my computer.

Michel's Spur was immaculate from all angles. I like the fact that it is understated and restrained. Nothing brash about it at all; just good taste.
The very rare Bird's Eye Maple interior is delightfully light and airy. It's a nice car Michel and drew the eye of many people.
Regards,
Brian

The Phantom, the "less flamboyant" one, is a rare Weymann-style boat tail quite capable of cruising at 100 mph. It's a very desirable car for a driver.

Brian

Thank you for posting the photos - I planned to go along but my plans were folied by a flat tyre en route. In any case, I did manage to see the Porsche Concours at Newington Armoury and BMW Display at Silverwater Park that were also on yesterday.

Thank you Godfather for posting the pics and your kind words.
And thank you also Professor for your kind description of the Queen.
