Nothing but respect for these two. Most folks would be reluctant to drive something that valuable, even short runs around town. To do what they do— fantastic. My list of folks I want to have a beer with some day just got a little longer.
Definitely an expensive hobby if your car of choice is a 1930s Bentley! I'm just glad they aren't afraid to drive the things. I don't think I'd take one on a cross country rally though! Maybe a 1930s Dodge...
Speed is indeed relative. We hear how expensive interesting prewar cars are from the same people who drone on and on about the equal or larger amounts of money they've dumped into a Camaro, Mustang, one-note muscle car, or what a Brit journalist years ago summed a Corvette, "a V-8 surrounded by four pieces of drywall." Refreshing to see Hagerty run a feature like this in place of the daily press releases or boy racer Walter Mitty pieces. Happy Guy Fawke's Day to all here gathered grasping there's more to autodom than that barely out of Kelley Blue Book, whatever Ford/GM pushing this week, or the latest super car du jour, most of which'll be forgotten or worth a fraction their present price in a mere decade.
Meanwhile, a "muscle car" with automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering? That's a golf cart on steroids for aging boys, something your grandmother could've driven.
Thanks for profiles on cars for men like this Bentley.
Talk about a strong healthy relationship! Money not withstanding that is a badass thing to do in any open vehicle. I can handle bad seats, limping over unpaved paths and even breakdowns but competing while cold and wet?? I will don all my hats just to take them off to this amazing couple.
