Serendipity Sunday: Bentley West Coast Rally at Stagecoach Stop

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

 

We often have breakfast on Saturdays at Cold Creek Tavern, the historic Stagecoach stop.  Yesterday, we had a business lunch meeting. We opted to have breakfast here this morning. 

As we walked out, we saw this beautiful Bentley of days gone by...(I am hoping that Kevin J. May, an expert in cars will pop by and tell us more about this beauty).

This car is part of the West Coast Rally.  Since its home is in Maryland, this car was brought by special transport.  As we were heading back home, we saw many convertible Bentley's old and newer heading up to the Stagecoach Stop, and breakfast! 

This venue is perfect.  In the old stagecoach days, this was were the drivers stopped for a meal, an overnight stay, and to change horses.  Now these horses have been replaced by horsepower...

Roy Kelley We agree with you re Kevin J. May 's comment, it made our moment at the Cold Spring Tavern even that much more enjoyable.  This is one the things I treasure about Active Rain, the exchange of information and expertise.  A

What a beautiful looking car, Alexandra. I'm not one who cares all that much about cars, per se, but this one certainly is an eye-catcher.

Nina Hollander classic cars are so much more interesting than the design of today's car, which is a classic state of monkey see/monkey do.  The differences between cars are blurred so that most cars look the same regardless of the brand. A

Ron and Alexandra Seigel that's so true, Alexandra. We had a Bentley in Paris, which was very non-descript. I thought it was so pretentious I refused to ride in it. It was a bank car reserved for the CEO (my husband), but I figured the little Mercedes was enough for me.

Hello Alexandra and Ron - Yesterday, I was mentioning that each day in Southern California seems like a car show/rally of some sorts.  Not so officially most times.

Nina Hollander I loved my Mercedes roadster.  In commercial real estate we usually met someone at the site (building), land, or store.  So I did not need a larger car.  Ron had the larger car when we were going to pick up a client to show property.  As we changed our biz focus, we realized we did not need two cars, so wel sold mine, and drive a sedan now.

HI Alexandra... I've stuck with my Honda Accord sedan... for more years than I can count now. Such a reliable car I never have to worry about it. I figured out a long time ago, I want a reliable and comfortable car for me and my clients... but beyond that I have no one to impress.

This is another wonderful and entertaining post. Love how it morphed into "Car talk."  Kevin J. May especially added some interesting tidbits.
