As there are a few photographs of the TR on this website at
the Gelsmoor, I decided on something different this month, so I have chosen this gorgeous
Rolls Royce Silver Ghost I captured on 11th.
Although I haven't driven a Ghost I have driven several Phantom 1's
which I would imagine are similar.
I remember the gear changes are slow, and on
the down change the need to double de-clutch - no synchromesh. The cable brakes
are assisted by a mechanical servo driven from the gearbox.
The Queens Silver Jubilee was celebrate by the RREC in 1977 by visiting the
Queen at Windsor Castle, which, I was privileged to take part in driving my favorite, a
barrel sided P1 tourer.
