The Bentleys are coming!




It’s spring in New England. Now that the snow is gone, the Rolls Royces and Bentleys are coming out of the woodwork.

I’d like you to meet one of my old friends and his car:



This is Efrem Gordon, a local attorney and long time Bentley driver. One of my judge buddies describes Efrem as the elder statesman of the Western Massachusetts bar. He graduated Harvard Law School before I was born, and he’s practiced here in Springfield ever since.

For a quarter of a century, if I had bad trouble, I always knew I could turn to Efrem for help. For just as long, we’ve kept these cars of his running.

Here are a few views of the car . . .






This Bentley R Type is just about all original. It's got less than 50,000 miles on the odometer, and it still works like new.

A beautiful car John, I've always had a soft spot for British and French cars. We have a great European car club here in Pensacola, it is such a joy to see these automobiles and a lot of fairly rare ones (Riley, Invicta, Jensen, and of course the AC428 I sent you pics of). Nothing like leather and wood to get pulse going lol.
