By Dlen SheUhe In America, the era of the class- ic cars has passed but in Europe two still survive in our .day -- England's Rolls-Royce and Ger- many's Mercedes-Benz. Rolls-Royce was born when Sir Charles Rolls and Sir Henry Royce combined their talents in 1904 and founded the famous automo- bile factory. The car has never completely-submitted to stream- lining and the radiator is un- changed in 57 years except for the emblem. The RR was red enamel on silver but when Royce died in 1933, the RR was chang- ed from red to mourning black and has remained so ever since. The flying lady radiator orna- ment has been used for 45 years. If anything goes wrong within three years, following purchase, all repairs and replacements are made free of charge. During this three-year period a factory repre. sentative calls to inspect the car. He would be certain that the car is pleasing you, and, more im- portant, that you are. not abusing the car. Mereedes-Benz, made by the world's oldest automobile com. pany, Daimler-Benz, is celebrat- ing its 75th yearin 1961. The car received its present name in 1902 when Austria-Hungary's consul general visited the factory and promised to order 30 of Benz' famous racers to enter in the Nice Road Race if they would name them for his daughter, Mercedes (pronounced Mer-say-diss). They won the first 30 places and his daughter's name became a world famous symbol of automotive quality and speed. Never did the famous three-pointed star shine more brightly than in the late 30's when the 540K and Grossex Mercedes were synonomotrs with" wealth and royalty throughout Europe.
