” . . owning and running a Bentley, with all its attendant joys, is perfectly feasible even on the limited budget of a car-owning, wage-earning 21-year-old. So if you are thinking of buying a car, why not consider the attractions of the Mark VI Bentley ? . . . The extraordinary thing is that these fine machines can be picked up for anything between £100 and £350. The thing to remember, is this : it is not a deal to be rushed into, but when you do find a good one, it can be expected to motor many thousands of miles without repair work. . . .”—Paul Pickering, writing on the “21 Page” of the Sunday Express dated February 27th, 1966. His remarks are at variance with the unfortunate experiences of the late Laurence Pomeroy, whose 1953 Roll-Royce Silver Wraith developed such serious gearbox, clutch, radiator and suspension troubles that it represented a considerable loss, and whose 1958 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, a one-owner, constantly-serviced, chauffeur-driven car, suffered automatic transmission failure within two months of purchasing it. Conflicting views on these fascinating cars. No doubt the average service obtained from them lies somewhere between these two experiences. . . .
