Rolls-royce & Bentley Exhaust Cut-out Lever Plate (pre-war) on

Rolls-Royce and Bentley (pre-war) exhaust cut-out lever warning plate.  English law did not permit the use of an exhaust cut-out, but it was OK on the Continent!  This plate surrounds the lever on the front center floorboard which controls the exhaust cut-out mechanism on pre-war Rolls-Royce and Bentley motorcars.  If your Rolls-Royce or Bentley has an exhaust cut-out, it is probably missing this plate.  In over 50 years in the hobby, I have never seen another one for sale.  When new it was usually painted black with red lettering.  I would suggest restoring this plate with new black and red paint, or polishing the steel and touching up the red lettering.  Other antique English automobiles may also have a cut-out lever which this plate may fit.  Size: 3 1/4 inches (8.3cm) high, 3 inches (7.6cm) wide.  The opening for the lever is approx. 1 5/8 inch (4.1 cm) x 5/8 inch (1.6cm).  I am not a dealer - just cleaning out my years of collecting.  Please contact with any questions or regarding international shipping.  Also please look at my other items currently listed on eBay.  Thank you.

The Aston Martin e DBS Coupé Zagato Centennial (pictured, built for a Japanese entreprenuer Zagato and Aston Martin have a long history of working together to produce very special limited editions of AML cars, from the beautiful DB4 Zagato to the recent V12 Zagato. So it’s entirely appropriate – as this is Aston Martin’s Centenary year – that Zagato produce an Aston Martin Special Edition to mark the event. In fact, they’ve gone one better by producing two special Astons for the centenary – the Aston Martin DBS Coupe Centennial and the Aston Martin DB9 Spyder Centennial.

Car collector and artist makes you look twice

As with most artists, Louis Carvell simply sees the world differently than others, and his passion for cars and car collecting led him to create a thought-provoking (and clever) body of work he entitled: “Reincarnations: Car Parts ReBorn.” The photographic collages are of spare vintage-automobile parts inspired by, “the dream cars of the Eisenhower era,” Carvell said. “These pieces are art in and of itself. Initially, I photographed them [alone] against white, seamless.” Eventually, Carvell decided to expand and refine his concept and place the parts into surrealist tableaux, to give one pause to consider these objects outside their defined roles.
