Rolls-Royce woodie picnic

"Picnics the way they used to be.
And should be!
After a leisurely drive in an early shooting brake to an idyllic secluded location, browse a sumptuous spread with friends and family...
the classical picnic outing!"

English woodie

English shooting brakes and estate cars were vastly different before and after World War II. Early examples tended to be built for the aristocrat. Later models were usually in within the financial grasp of the commoner.  Once synonymous with wood-paneled estate cars, the term 'shooting brake' now indicates the type of vehicle, but without regard for material of construction.
