What’s not to love about a mint condition (1954?) Rolls Royce (seen last Sunday afternoon in Berkeley  CA) with Suicide doors?

Classic old car-spotting in Berkeley CA

April 30, 2011

We spotted this 1942 Buick Special on Telegraph Ave., on Friday April 29 and so we took some photos.  A friend of the owner said the vehicle has 69,000 original miles.  Since it is 69 years old; you do the math.
