11-24-2012 10:30 PM Roll Royce and Bentley club
On my travels the other day the Roll Royce and Bentley club was staying the same hotel as me; I managed to take a few photos before I was told off. They were not very sociable as I was leaving a truck driver decided to wake everyone up by driving through the font wall of the hotel just missing a few of these very nice old relics.
