Compared to later SY and SZ cars the dear old Clouds were as simple as billycarts, yet in their day they were considered very sophisticated chariots. The Factory as was the custom kept information on the model very close to their chest or at least the dealers' chests although in those days our forebears were flat out trying to put Ghosts and Phantoms and their little off-springs together.

Eventually, an elaborate manual was published when the vee eight made its debut. Very nice pictures, gloss paper and smart covers. Getting one was harder than getting tickets to a grand final! Eventually they dribbled out to the amateur plebs about the time some of the cars were being unloaded through car yards.

As well as the Workshop Manual there were the spare parts lists. These were comprehensive but no longer did we have the beautifully shaded drawings of bits that we enjoyed with the old Mark VI's!

One of the little known outputs from the presses however were the Service Sheets or Bulletins which supplemented the manuals with topical problems as they arose. Many of these are reflected in the Workshop Manual but some are not.

Well Richard our expat in Zurich and keeper of the mechanical cache has now installed a heap of these documents relating to the S2 and S3 cars which make interesting reading. As you know all this information is held in the Hunt House in the UK where apparently you may visit and peruse it if you make an appointment. We are saving you a plane fare!

For those that are still confused, the Technical Library is at http://rrtechnical.info/

For the record this was a memorable gathering of nice cars and nice people with common interests organised at Dubbo NSW by our esteemed Registrar Steve Redford. The Blue Beast covered over 1000 kilometres and turned in 18 mpg!! More importantly it continued to proceed! Thanks to Steve and all those who attended.
