Special car auction

February 19, 2007

Nice mixture of cars today. I got to drive a 1975 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, 1972 Mk1 E-type (V12), Triumph Stag and TR4A, 1954 Mk7 Jaguar saloon, stretched Mercedes saloon, 1973 Lotus Elan Sprint and a unique American Lincoln convertible.

Quite a test of skill – several L.H. drive, strange unlabelled gear shifts, snatchy clutches and faulty brakes were amongst the challenges.

Here’s a picture of the 1947 Lincoln Continental Convertible:
