If I'm not mistaken, that's not too dissimilar to the one I drove a number of years ago.

Not sure about that steering wheel in the Lincoln... but have always liked then since watching Frank Cannon rush around as a PI.
And what that air scoop all about spoils the whole look of the car
Only working half a day now.

Liked the way he screeched to a halt, clambered out, and the car continued rocking. Always wondered if he could get back in before it stopped moving.

Wire wheels, maybe gold, would be quite smart on the Lincoln. Picture taken in the red light district- how appropriate :D You don‘t get to see customized cars often, actually ever, on the road here in Switzerland. I think he may have had garage plates on the car...

Swaffham Norfolk Saturday 24 August. A 1931 Rolls Royce. Bit battered but fully functional. Original chassis engine and running gear but it has had four different bodies. Originally a closed saloon but the tourer style has resulted in the dash's veneer suffering somewhat.
