Ma­jes­tic ma­chine

Classic Sports Car - - Letters -

Don’t be de­pressed about your lovely Rolls-royce Sil­ver Cloud II, Martin (Buck­ley’s Mar­ket Mat­ters, Septem­ber). The iconic, in­stantly recog­nis­able lines penned by John Blatch­ley com­bine style with pres­ence. I have fond mem­o­ries of hol­i­day­ing in Frin­ton as a teenager, when this was the first model of the mar­que I was priv­i­leged to be driven in (also in Sand over Sable). The owner was a mil­lion­aire, which meant some­thing in the ’60s.

The af­flu­ent fam­ily in whose hol­i­day home I stayed had a smart Fawn over Sky Blue Arm­strong Sid­de­ley Star Sap­phire, but the Cloud had the mea­sure of it.
