|The Old Girl is on the move
nearly a decade hosted at the Riverside Museum of Transport in Glasgow,
the time came for “The Old Girl” to move to a new home.
Gifted to the then Royal Scottish Automobile Club in 1974, “The
Old Girl” is the second oldest Rolls Royce in the world.
One of the terms of the bequest are that the car should be on public
display in Scotland. There are not many places that have both the space
and expertise to be able to display and preserve The Old Girl.
The Trustees were very pleased therefore that, in March 2023, The Old Girl was moved to a new home at the Grampian Transport Museum at Alford, near Aberdeen.
No, Ian and Jonathan did not drive her there.
The museum opened for the season on 31 March 2023 and we would
encourage members to pop in and see her sometime. She is in very good
company. Including, at the moment, the Rothmans liveried David
Sutton/Works Ford Escort RS1800, once driven by Ari Vatanen and David
