Here's a brain teaser for you. How is this picture relevant to racing in general and this thread in particular?

Nicely staged and I haven't a clue but back in the day the driver would be told not to ever load luggage that way again. Even driving with your elbow out the window was considered a no-no.

Ha! As an aside, (not the answer) I went to my 5 year class reunion in that very car. Imagine pulling in to White Castle at 2am and piling out to order gut bombs. 

 

It it isn't about the car though, or the driver or the lady for that matter.

Exactly. The building is the Westport Country Playhouse. Newman lived and Woodward lives in the neighborhood. They are part owners of the restaurant next door. Woodward (now 87) was the artistic director for much of the 2000's before PLN died. 

As another aside, no one will be giving the driver a talking to. He owns the car. It was commissioned for the King of England.

The last King died in 1952...

You know that RR is like a 1932 model right? 

It's a Silver Cloud. Might even be a Silver Cloud II.

Silver Cloud series debuted in 1955.
