Default Bentley & R-R Specials

Now this has nothing to do with Bristols, but of late I do see lots of
comments about Mark VI Bentleys?
I've looked at a few of these on the internet and they are indeed lovely
looking cars and probably undervalued. Are they all steel bodied?
But now the reason for this mailing.
This afternoon, on the way back from a visit to a client in the north of
Holland, I came across a 1929 Peterson (or was that maybe Petersen?)

I think chrome would be a much stronger and cheaper option (also due to the
thicker plate), but Nickel Silver is certainly more beautiful!
Cést la vie!
The Bentley was certainly unusual, but I still think we will stay living in
this house, and be looking for a good Bristol that want's a good home.!
With best regards,
