Phyllis Court Classic Motoring Club

A ROLLS-ROYCE Silver Ghost built in 1908 was the star attraction at a display of classic

A ROLLS-ROYCE Silver Ghost built in 1908 was the star attraction at a display of classic cars held at Phyllis Court Club in Henley on bank holiday Monday.

The event, which was organised by the club’s Classic Motoring Club, featured almost 50 cars including Ferraris, Bentleys, Jaguars and Maseratis owned by members.

The Silver Ghost was displayed in honour of the club’s 110th anniversary.

Motoring club chairman Ron Jacobs said: “Because the club is 110 years old this year my committee wanted to have a car from the era.

“We now amalgamate the old cars with the new — classic is in the eye of the beholder.



“We have got an electric section to bring people up to the 21st century.

“We have done the display for many years now and it’s one of the highlights of the year. Each year we get better at it.”

Phyllis Court Club chairwoman Patricia Christmas said: “The Rolls- Royce was the star attraction. We wanted something to be a major centrepiece.

“This club is stunning in what members can offer us.”

There was a parade of cars in the afternoon and several owners spoke to guests about their vehicles.

In addition to the cars, the Wednesday Art Club displayed a selection of its works, many depicting cars, in the club’s Riverside Pavilion.
