Classic was shipped to Halifax from England for the adventure
This week, a 1926 Bentley convertible will dip its tires in the Atlantic Ocean to mark the start of a cross-Canada drive.
The classic motorcar was shipped from England by owner Robin Hine, who told The Halifax Chronicle Herald he's fulfilling a life-long dream to drive his family's Bentley across our great nation.
The paper says the car's been in the Hine's care since 1936.
Hine, 49, will be accompanied by friend Neil Stephenson in the car which has no roof. The pair are bound for Victoria, B.C. with a loose plan to drive mostly back roads. They carry no spare parts aside from some spark plugs.
The Herald says the only firm date they must meet is Stephenson's flight back to England on July 17.
