There are some sedan and coupe 1920/30 era cars in my city, these cars are tremendous robust w/massive iron chassis and iron engine block, the 6 cylinders appeal me specially.

Nice pics! The house tour is excellent as well. Those robber barons sure knew how to live.

Nice shots of some really vintage stuff there at the end.  There is SO little to those cars, it reminds of 70's motorcycles compared to modern ones.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh well.... at least we know one is a Rolls!


An idea is to take a photo of the ID plaque right after the car/item.

I wouldn't want to get hit by that Rolls Silver Ghost—it looks unstoppable!

When I was 20 years old I used to work for an elderly Cambridge graduate who went to school with "Charlie" Rolls. He describes him as driving his own car to school (with an engine he designed) which was so noisy you could hear him coming for a mile. Charlie died in 1910 at 32, becoming the first Briton to die in a plane crash. In the same year he did a double crossing in 95 minutes of the English Channel in an aircraft, being the first to do that.

This 1912 Silver Ghost "Corgi" was auctioned for a record $7 million 5 years ago. A lot of them were converted to ambulances in the first world war.
