Posh. I've never used that word before in my life, but it sums up this Bentley in four letters. A friend of mine loaned me his Continental W12 last year and it was very pleasurable to drive. The torque is satisfying as fuck. So when my neighbor parked this GTC in front of her shop I had to take a moment to appreciate it.

Staying local today, this Thunderbird is parked a few blocks from my house and has been begging me to lay down its long straight lines. This particular model is a 1979 Heritage Edition and is a last celebration of the truly large personal coupe. The 1973 and 1979 oil crises, along with the instroduction of more efficient imports, spelled disaster for the American land yacht.

I had long lusted for a finned-Cadillac and one day as I was driving in my neighborhood this one jumped out at me with a For Sale sign on the dash. It was a short-lived romance, though, as the electrical system was failing and it needed a complete rewire in the near future. No thanks.
