This very special W.O. Bentley 6 1/2 Ltr. Hunting Car, chassis WB2563, was made for the Nawab of Whopal. No fewer than eleven lamps were fitted for shooting tigers in the dark. Two search lights are mounted on telescopic standards on each side of the dickey seat and 100 yards of cable is carried on reels on the running boards. Ammunition and guns were carried in the door pockets. The windscreen folds forward to allow the occupants to shoot over the bonnet.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
