Our “Rainy Rolls” is an homage to Dali’s Rainy Taxi and can be seen at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. At a 1938 surrealist show in Paris, Salvador Dali shocked visitors with the “Rainy Taxi.” It was raining inside the car; a mannequin sat dripping wet in the rear seat. Dozens of snails wandered inside the car. In 1939, Dali created another rainy taxi, a yellow cab this time around. Finally, a last one was made for his museum in Figueres, using his own Cadillac. The “Rainy Rolls” is a homage to Dali’s Rainy Taxi. The “Rainy Rolls” is a Rolls Royce Sedanca 20/25 with an aluminum body by Thrupp and Maberly. The engine is an inline 6-cylinder with overhead valves. The Sedanca 20/25 was in production from 1929 until 1936, and with 4,000 cars sold, it was considered a success for Rolls Royce.
