"At nine o’clock, one morning late in July, Gatsby’s gorgeous car lurched up the rocky drive to my door and gave out a burst of melody from its three-noted horn." (ch 4)

Gatsby owned a Rolls- Royce, probably a 1922 model. It was unique, lavish, and somewhat of an enigma among cars-just like Gatsby himself.
