Michael B 1933 R/R 20/25 Sports Coupe by Gurney Nutting

600 miles in a 1933 R/R-No problem

http://valued-user.smugmug.com/Cars/1933-Rolls-Royce/ .In 2012 my wife, Patricia and I decided to drive our 1933 R/R from Detroit to Elkart Lake Wi for the Brian Redman Vintage Races in July. The car was originally the personal car of Jack Barclay, largest R/R , Bentley dealer in the world in 1933. Jack Barclay was also one of The Bentley Boys winning the 6 Hour Race at Brooklands in 1929. While at Elkart Lake we entered our R/R in Saturday Night's Street Concours as judged by Road and Track Magazine. The car drove perfectly to Ludington Michigan where we rode the ship Badger accross Lake Michigan to Wisconsin and ultimately Elkart Lake. Both drives, going and coming went flawlessly. One might remember the temperature at that time was over 100 degrees every day!
