I'm a lucky boy - Continental R by Adcock book
My Christmas present from my wife, a book I have been trying to obtain for about 3 years at a sensible price!
Bentley Continental R by Ian Adcock.
I thought this book would have lots of information, unavailable elsewhere - and I am not disappointed. A really fascinating plotted history of the development of the car. Adcock was clearly given excellent access to the company and those people involved in the design and development. Masses of detail from interviews etc which I have never seen or heard before.
On top of everything, the photography is absolutely superb - an added bonus as I'm in the photographic industry. You rarely get such well crafted commercial photography these days.
When I read how much work went into fine tuning every aspect of this car, it makes me realise how much work I still have in store to bring mine up to the right standard!!
If you are interested in this car, try to get this book. If you hang out, eventually one comes along at a vaguely sensible price!
