For #17 why is the rear end of the green one sloped so much? It unlike any Bentley I've ever seen.

I think it's the angle, the green one, like the light grey one posted alongside it, is a standard factory saloon.

History of the car is as follows:

Quote:
This special fastback two-seater coupe was built to the special order of the late Robert (Bob) Gooda, and one time was jointly owned by Racer Brian Dumps. Brian had raced the car at a BDC Silverstone in 1967.

This 1954 Bentley R-Type Coupe Chassis # B77ZX is well known and featured in the Bentley Book Fifty years of the Marque by Johnnie Greene. The car has been fully restored within the last 2 years and just recently completed the Colordao Grand 1000 mile tour.

Ahah! That explains the Colorado sticker on it. No wonder it was so obscure, not exactly a sparkling racing career
