Speaking of Rolls, a few evenings ago, I saw a brand-new black Phantom
driving quite aggressively down a major thoroughfare in my city. At a
stoplight, I got close enough to get a better look. That car is HUGE. In
pictures, it appears not to be outsized, but that's because it's bigger
than a normal luxury car in *every* dimension. The beltline of the doors
was nearly to the roofline of most other cars on the road.
From the back, it looked quite sporty, but from the front, it looked like
a stodgy old Rolls.
Personally, no matter how powerful the engine, I don't think I'd be
throwing around a brand new $350,000 car quite as aggressively as the
driver of this particular Rolls was doing that evening--at least not on a
crowded city street during the evening commute.

Having crossed the bridge and gotten over to the other side in Merry Olde
Englande, I might suggest that a weekend could be spent just in London. And
then maybe a few more days in London also. And then maybe a week or so in
London. and then you could go upcountry a ways. Stoke on Trent area has some
nice dishes for sale as I remember. And of course there are the other places in
England where there is some history - like every 10 feet or so! Of course you
have to realize that one reason it takes so long in London is that they name
each street with several names, each lasting about one block. It might take you
several days just to find Fleet Street, for example! And you have to be very
carefull when asking directions of the natives - they tend to enjoy talking to
Amerikans and it can take a while. Anyway, enjoy!
