Very cool car 'ER0L' ! I'm not the biggest fan of vintage cars, but this car is awesome! I can see a lot of different techniques to make the car, like the flag piece on the front.
Thanks a lot LegofreakKO345! Glad you like it. The flag was the only part that came to my mind to close this section.

Beautiful! Really nice built! At first glance it was hard to see it was Lego.
Very glad you like it! Thx LegoJalex.

The touch is done with the chrome pieces and the bumper.
Thanks! The bumper is not my own idea, though, I first saw it on Matt Brown's fantastic 20's American LaFrance Pumper
, but it's already used on the vehicle of the 10197 Fire Brigade.

I agree - it's the second one that does it for me (it really is unmistakably a Rolls). I'm not keen on using the trans-clear cheese slopes as a window on the first one; I prefer the panels, or - obviously, if you've seen my cars - the hinge tile with 1x4 windscreen. But I know you've said you don't like the hinge tile solution, although I can't for my life understand why...
Using the mudguards like that is obviously clever, but I think the bar/binoculars/flag combo is even better - it makes the whole front section flow very nicely. The whole front end is very well done.
Thanks a lot L@go, very glad you like it! Why I don't like using the hinge tile on this type of cars:
- There is a moving part where there should be something fixed.
- The hinge adds too much to the height where a low silhouette is needed. The main issue here is that you already need 3 levels above the cockpit to get the steering wheel in the right position. The step between hood and cockpit shouldn't be too tall.
(I have seen your new cars and will still comment on them.)

Very nice car! I have spent much time wondering how you have done some details!
Many thanks viracocha! Hopefully you got it, if not, just ask.

This car has an excellent vintage-feel to it.
I think it's a great MOC.
Many thanks Ferrik! I you are interested in vintage cars, please check out the Vintage Car Group
I would like to add another photo of a more specific Rolls-Royce Phantom Convertible with a folded hood on the back and some minor changes.
