Remember our 1982 Rolls-Royce Corniche Convertible from January? We saw her just after a light drizzle in the fall, top up, what turned out to be her last appearance for 2011. Now that Oregon summer has arrived in its full splendor, so has the Flying Lady. Today her top was down, as all convertible tops are meant to be.
Almost down anyway, and parked here all day so far as I could tell. Why is this wonderful and rare automobile exposing its leather and hardwoods to the open sunshine? I’m guessing the top goes down as far as it can one time in spring, and stays down all summer. What the hell, much better out and driven than shut up indoors. That leather smells grand, nothing like it, not on wheels anyway.
