A Weekend in Monte Carlo


You'd have thought the Monte Carlo Rally had arrived last Saturday. I was crossing the Place du Casino when suddenly four Rolls Royces drove up and parked outside the Hôtel de Paris.

But of course it wasn't the Monte Carlo Rally (that will take place on the 19 - 23 January 2011 and will celebrate the 100th year of this great event).

In fact, as the owner of one of these beautiful cars told me, they'd all driven down from the UK for a weekend in Monte Carlo.

If you owned cars like these, what better place to go for a drive than to Monaco.

Rolls royces from the old days! Surprising they are still in such a good condition. Wonder what it would look like if there was a woman behind the wheel.

Great selection of vintage motors. What it is to be rich. Just decide to drive to MC for the weekend. I doubt we could afford to pay for all the petrol needed.
