LOL..the bad part is. This is the exact thing I had in mind....the color. I have a guy here that can color match the "mustard" with the redish speckels & all.

The state the car is in right now, ownership costs do not matter.
Boo to the naysayers. Here's my 2 cents: While I have never been in or under one, two local high schools auto shops rehab vehicles and then sell them to the community. One of them a few years back was a Rolls. I remember a couple of the kids talking with the shop teacher and a potential buyer saying (and they took it down to the rails) that every single piece they took off, cleaned and/or replaced was "quality". They machined the few pieces they couldn't source locally and put together (from scrap) a vehicle that was worth every penny of $7500 they got for her. The kids learned a thing or two about 'quality' they say, and could understand how the slow build process added to the cost. What happens to a Rolls that's not well maintained? Same thing as a Benz.

Shoot yourself immediately. The pain will subsist sooner, and you will feel like less of a fool in the longish run. If you are dead set upon this self destructive course, then take a garden hose and attach it to the exhaust (not the stupid Rolls, something that actually runs, maybe a Prius for kicks) and suck on it like you are a faggot with ten seconds left to live.

The only Rolls I've ever had was a late 70's Silver shadow in purple with a black roof , it cost me 8k back in 88 and I ran it for two years with the crippling cost of a set of rear disks and pads , two oil changes and a 15 Amp fuse . Ford Granada's parts fit a lot of these era's rollers , so you can get a lot of the parts on the cheap , they look great slammed down to the ground with moon dish hub caps . Enjoy
