    I think that two things would have made it better.
    1) gray ghost instead of "grey ghost"
    2) If he didn't try to talk over the car's noise - I had a hard enough time understanding his version of English without the car running.

        Gray or grey, what does it matter they're both correct accepted spellings and mean the same thing.

        I agree, it was almost impossible to hear him while the car was running; but I had no problem understanding "his version of English". It was clear as day compared to the broken english and accents we have to deal with here.

          I was thinking the SAME thing, as far as I know there IS no "Correct" word for Gray/Grey.
          I don't believe it's one of those Old World, King's English vs "American" English terms either like: Color/Colour!

            1) I took the name to be a take off on the Rolls Royce Gray Ghost (gray, not grey).
            2) Studebaker, at least in 1953, used gray, not grey.
            3) Gray is more common in American English and grey is more common in European English.
            4) Gray is what used to be used here, but like a lot of things there has been more acceptance of alternates, like grey.
