Not news. Lame attempt at political humor at the end.

In keeping with the Democrat's socialist agenda how about you redistribute the wealth so to speak and let the residents of the burg tool around town in your car? You know, help out the have-nots. ;)

oh, I see, now a republican finds fault with a man who works hard, saves money and achieves a goal. You politically driven nitwits who will be against anything and everything the other party says or does no matter what are ruining our country.

He should have registered it in NH to avoid the sales tax.

Too bad the S&E didn't print a decent photo of the vehicle. I remember reading about the Turbo R in car magazines years ago, and it is quite attractive. There are a couple of more modern Bentleys cruising around the Concord area but otherwise I never see any. Mostly I just see dressed-up Chrysler 300s, i.e. "ghetto Bentleys."

So the Democrats doing the same are OK in your book?

I work hard, make good money, and see 30%+ out of my annual pay GONE in state and federal taxes while 47% of tax filers in the United States pay NO income tax when all is said and done. Stop giving away my money.

Democrats ram against Republicans and conservatives for being rich and living high on the hog, but have no problem when one of their own does it....a la one Senator John Forbes "do you know who I am" Kerry.

All politicians are moronic half wits that are self serving......don't just blame the Republicans.

Now that I think about it, Gerry Martel of Fitchburg had (or has) a 1950's era Bentley that was once owned by Alfred Hitchcock. I don't think it was driven much but I remember seeing it in a parade years ago.

Um, the article was about a car, right?

Nice story but not really a news story. There are many people in the area that own more expensive and vintage cars. His Bentley isn't a new one that costs $300K or more. Go to any cruise night and you will see winning show cars that cost $100K and more.

And once again this matters how? That you waste money and time that could help more than rubbing your ego???? Stupid waste of space that you are.

it's amazing to me how people can rip apart a story about someone in the community. Since when is a newspaper only supposed to report bad happenings? come on people, lighten up
