Not 20’s but a sort of WO style 3.5L, when I borrowed it for a day long VCC car rally.

I lent the owner my B31 for a VCC motorbike rally, which I thought a fair exchange 😆

Beautiful car, but not the easiest to drive, or most practical (comfortable!) on a cooler or wet day.

PS I never smile in photos

W O - didn’t the Bentley Boys refer to him as The Headmaster?

Railway engineering applied to motor cars.  Lovely!
