Rolls-Royce Centenary Celebrations
Johannesburg Country Club, May 2004
The Rolls-Royce and Bentley Owners Club of South Africa joined
the rest of the world in celebrating the centenary of Rolls-Royce
with a gathering of 90 cars in the picturesque gardens of
the Johannesburg Country Club, Auckland Park.
(I have included quite a few pictures in this report, so it may take a
few minutes to download. Thank you for your patience)
One of only eight Silver Ghosts in South Africa.
This one is a 1915 model.
Mrs. England, believed to be the oldest Rolls-Royce driver
in South Africa, was interviewed by Top Car, the
television magazine programme.
On May 4th some of us gathered again for lunch at the Kyalami
celebrate the first meeting between Charles Rolls and Henry Royce, and
participate in the World Wide Wave. The idea of the "World Wide Wave"
was to allow all Rolls-Royce aficionados to participate in one common
world wide toast. Enthusiasts all over the world met for lunch, and
at 12:45 raised their glasses in honor of Rolls and Royce.
