Above, Jack Hilton, below is the cruising life.
 
 
 
This is a rather unusual situation for a Teal: outside a cafe/restaurant in the main entertainments area on board  a cruise ship….
 
 
EIB4342
 
 
Several Tealers who love cruisin’ have noticed this rather attractive Type 35 on board “The Navigator of The Seas” in the main concourse. A  Teal badge  is displayed low down at the front.  Do any Tealers recognize this attractive car? (PS: Andy and Colin both believe the maritime Teal was previously  owned by Jack Hilton.)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Teal bears a classic Teal numberplate with Ettore Bugatti’s initials, and has fine lines (and brake covers, rather like Andy Dutton’s and Jeff Turner’s ) .  Let’s hope one day soon she will be released from playing the role of The Flying Dutchman, endlessly wandering the seas without a crew, and return happily to the roads of Britain with a stalward Tealer at the helm… The ship belongs to Royal Caribbean Lines if you want to make an offer.
