Picture of the week - Bentley Blower SC with Patina

The picture of this weeks shows a detail of a Bentley Blower SC with true patina. Taken at this year's Arosa Classic, where this Bentley was entered in the racing class, this car represents what is en vogue these days, a car that looks like an old car and not an over-restored piece of art. I love it and the patina suits this hard-used Bentley well. It will not win a price at Pebble Beach most probably, but it's good for a fast blast up the Arosa hills.

I couldn't agree more. The tarted up cars at Pebble Beach seem just too good to be true. They weren't even like that when they were brand new. Half those owners wouldn't be game to drive them probably. What are nice cars for? To be driven I would have thought.
