    Spent the morning getting the Silver Cloud lll ready for her next adventure , they truly are the best standard steel Rolls-Royce model ever built.

    You will notice this car has its front picnic table under the dash , having factory air cond ,there was need need for it to go to Prahran air cond and have the under dash A/C fitted and the picnic table thrown away @ as was the case with so many Silver Clouds/S series cars .

    Prahran car radio fitted that dual system to lots of Jaguars in the 60s and 70s

    Prahran air conditioning doesn't do cars

    So I used the launch control in the Golf R today for the first time. 100kmh came up in around 4.6 seconds.
    Certainly fast enough to scare a 355CH.

    Perhaps I'll take the Golf to the rally and challenge Moretti to a drag race.

    Maybe Pat can bring his grandma's car too and we could have a three way race?! :D
