Puttin’ on the Ritz

on

I had lunch today with my favorite uncle and it was really nice to see him.  As we walked back to our cars, I spotted this Rolls Royce.  I don’t know what year it is, but it had the Arizona classic plates on it.  While photographing the hood ornament, I flashed back to the all of the 1920’s movies, and the music of Puttin’ on the Ritz.  Click to enlarge the photo.  Namaste’

    The famous Rolls Royce… brings back memories of my youth… when you saw one of those you stood with reverence as the owner was a very important person, normally driven by a driver with white gloves…

  3. Love automobiles, regardless of the year but the older models do hold a charm and grace of years gone by. Here is the website of a museum we visited on our trip to Fairbanks, AL this summer. BEST museum experience I have ever had. They really knew how to put this together and give a show. As a side note, all cars in the collection with the exception of 4 are still taken on the road today.
