One of the dangers of being the prettiest car in the carpark is that ocasionally you get competition. This happened last Wednesday at Chenonceau when the Bentley Drivers Club were on one of their jaunts and 18 Bentleys of varying ages were let loose on the Loire Valley.
I have to confess here that of all the cars ever built, to my eyes the British Racing Green Le Mans era Bentleys of the late 1920s and 1930s are the most desirable. You can imagine the mixed emotions then, when 2 such cars (both 1930 4.5 litre unsupercharged models) pulled up near Célestine. I am no expert on Bentleys, but I know what I like, and I liked what I saw.
look how they tower over CélestineThat photo was taken because it reminded me of this cartoon
