Getting it right

Getting it right

I always become impatient when people get the sizes of the W.O. Bentleys muddled. It seems so easy - 3, 4 ½, 6 ½, and 4-litre. So I was unhappy to discover that I had been made to write of a 6-litre vintage Bentley last month, although it was 6 ½-litres on another page. Also, I am quite sure I did not refer to the car which followed champion boxer Jack Johnson on his training runs as a "locomotive car". It was, of course, a Loco-mobile. - W.B.
