BXM 514

Sure, that Chevrolet Corvette may be appealing as your next 'family' car, but perhaps you should consider owning a 1935 Bentley. Why a Bentley 3 1/2 Litre Vanden Plas Tourer you say? Bob owned one, and recently, his same car was on the sale market. More:

A two-door Vanden Plas-bodied tourer, the car was designated the registration number BXM 514 and delivered to Montgomery's London home in May by Jack Barclay Ltd, and later shipped over to the USA in September.

It was subject to an extensive restoration in 2000, and since that time has resided in the prestigious Keeler Collection, where it has been maintained to a scrupulous standard. Presented with original engine and bodywork, this represents a superb opportunity to acquire an extremely good quality car as well as a piece of vintage Bentley history.

I guess I'll have to settle for the Corvette - this one's been sold.

Now I have to work on finding his house there. Wouldn't it be great just to take a spin in it? Of course we would have to round up a guy that looks good in a tux.

Knowing my luck, it's a two seater and I'd be in the trunk ;0)
