Martin Bennett – editor of the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club of Australia’s journal Praeclarum from 1984 to 2004, and editor of the Sir Henry Royce Foundation of Australia’s Foundation Bulletin – has owned many Rolls-Royce and Bentley cars and has extensive driving experience of most models, from 1905 to the present. Gloucestershire-born, he now lives in Australia.Review:
The Flying Lady, part of the International Club for Rolls-Royce and Bentley Owners & Enthusiasts, February 2007, US
As there are always new enthusiasts joining the club, it seems useful to point out that one of the standard reference books in a solid RR/B library has been reprinted – for the third time no less, which in and of itself is a testament to the work's lasting relevance. The original edition was reviewed in FL98-5, p. 5630. Quite a bit has happened to these nameplates since (the Continental SC especially comes to mind – a most unusual car, and missing from most modern Bentley literature), but none of it is reflected in any of the subsequent editions as they are straight reprints rather than revisions. One hastens to add that they were issued without the author's involvement who probably would have dearly liked an opportunity to keep the book current (and expand the all-to-brief index!). No matter, what it does cover – 1951 to 1998 – it does thoroughly. Of timeless usefulness is the complete chassis list of all R-type-S3 Continentals, as are the lists of specs and modifications. The book is extensively illustrated, mostly b/w, even reproducing period ads and road tests.
