  • I know someone who bought a used 1971 Silver Shadow in 1989. 24,000.00 but suspension needed another 20k in rebuild. Luckily did not have a vinyl roof. It still drives nice.

  • If I had the skill, and patience, and tools; I think RR is being overlooked as the perfect BEV conversion oppportunity. The vehicle interior is premium to a level unmatched. The vehicle is already large and heavy and expected to be so. The cost of maintaining the ICE is extreme. I don't fully understand why people will put the money into making a BEV version of a VW bug or Honda Civic, but not a Rolls. It would be about as easy/hard to do (likely a little easier with the extra space) and you'd end up with an electric Rolls rather than an electric VW.

  • You can buy a fully sorted old Rolls or Bentley from a specialist dealer with a full service history for remarkably little money. And the running costs will be substantial, but you'll get a usable and enjoyable luxury car. On the other hand, if you buy a rolling wreck, than the cost to fix it will be prohibitive. Both of these guys went for a cheaper and nastier car than they should have. I definitely don't recommend doing what they did, but that doesn't mean that every old Rolls and Bentley is a disaster. In fact, you can buy a Rolls or Bentley in nearly perfect condition any model year from the 1910's up to the present day and drive it enjoyably.

  • doesen`t ANYONE repair or service their own cars theses days. if you`ve bought and old RR or Bentley, you aim to keep it, it`ll only be used on high days and holidays and you`ve got a garage on your house why the **** would you take it to a mechanic. Lots of info on forums and much of the parts fitted to theses cars are used on other vehicles. For Christ`s sake man up and get your hands dirty and stop letting so called mechanics rip you off

  • A good going over with T-cut, a quart or twelve of oil and a kick up the arse with a wrecking ball for all previous owners and it should be fine. Seriously, I've seen worse - there was a bloke in Pembroke Dock, Wales, who ran a Shad, and when it past you going down the street it brought to mind a Keith Moon drum solo, with a bag of spanners in the bass. Mind you, the owner looked like he was one supermarket trip away from destitution...

Largely bought for no other reason than perceived status. Wait til you have to replace that "Turbo R". Yull roll it into the ditch and write it off as a bad dream.

  • Hi: I've watched a few of your disaster-purchase videos and am impressed. But it seems to me that you have more money than good sense. Don't take it to heart. I don't either. I bought several disastrous Mk III Toyota Supras. Spent thousands on blown head gaskets. The Mk IV Supra was a fine machine. I even lived in one for a while.

  • I went through the same pains. It's obvious someone changed the fuel pump for something not OEM. That's why it dies. The original one is actually a double fuel pump (yep, they like gas a lot). I'd like to see what happens next. I have a few good resources for cheaper parts if you need it. Good luck.

  • If the Americans could actually build a decent car or motorbike I maybe wouldn't be quite as offended at them slagging off British engineering. Their cars are dreadful, the fuel consumption is shit, the build quality is a joke, they don't corner properly, the suspension is like ours was 70 years ago, they're incapable of getting the maximum BHP from an engine. Their bikes are even worse. as well as being a car driver I'm also a biker. I had a test ride on a Harley and came up with a brilliant money saving alternative, buy a bag of broken spanners, put two wheels on it and ride around on that. The result is the same, but it's a lot fucking cheaper.
