Classic Rolls-Royce near my work... :D

I was walking to Starbucks and I saw a classic Rolls-Royce drive right in front of me... imagine my luck when I discovered it had parked a row or two away from my car! :) I don't know who this car belongs to, but it is beautiful and in perfect shape!

I failed to look close enough at the model tag on the back, unfortunately... and my pictures aren't clear enough to read it, but I think this article is close as to the range of models it probably falls within...

(I blanked out the license plate number for privacy, FYI)

I used my camera with flash, and for some shots I used my car headlights to help illuminate. I wish people made cars more like this, with hood ornaments, individual headlights and nice lines. I generally prefer more curves like the Jaguar marque, many vehicles from the 50's, or even most Bentleys and older Rolls-Royce models... but a Rolls-Royce of most any generation will always have a certain elegance to it (alright, there are a few exceptions... but as a general rule...). If I can ever afford one (highly unlikely anytime in the foreseeable future), I should be severely tempted to get one, especially if it is a convertible... :D (daydreams may potentially ensue)
