Ruth Buzzi, a regular on the '60s "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" comedy-variety show, has an eye for collector cars — and a personal stable of six Rolls-Royces.
She's been collecting Rolls-Royces since her marriage in 1978 to Kent Perkins, president of Allied Management Resources.
A gem in her collection is a 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud Drophead Coupe convertible, now on display in Petersen Automotive Museum's "A Century of Elegance" exhibit, which opened Friday.
Buzzi loves pulling up in one of her eye-catching luxury cars.
"Invariably, valets park your Rolls in front of the restaurant; it's there to let the public know discriminating people who expect the very best patronize the place," the 66-year-old comic said. "But it's also nice to know the valet isn't down in the parking garage rehearsing scenes from 'Gone in 60 Seconds.' "
