Got to forefill one of my little dreams today.Chap dropped in a immaculate 1981 Roller with 50000ks into our yard. The idea being we will get it detailed and then to be put accross the road in our ex rental sales yard.
Well we spent most of the arvo either driving or being driven(in the back seat of course) arround Bathurst lol.
The back seat is the most comfy back seat I have ever sat in. The engine is huge but only fed by two little SUs. The bonnet is huge, and I was surprised by the effort required to shut the doors. But so quite and refined for a 27 year old car.
Hope the owner does not get on explore oz LOL
Cheers Pete

This one only has one minor blemish on the bonnett, the interior is like new. Belonged to some prince in hong kong, then used as a wedding car in oz, but the owner told me it was not popular as a wedding car so is selling it.(wrong colour) I can put you in touch with the owner if you are interested.
Cheers Pete

that would be great, but I think it would be cheaper to stay married

There was one on the back of a towie here in Miriam Vale earlier this week and it didn't have a cover over it like they are supposed to if they "fail to proceed" tut tut.

A Rolls Royce NEVER breaks down - its unheard of - they merely fail to proceed.

A pilot is never lost - he is merely unsure of his position

I'm not sure about this any longer, but don't think a RR has a head gaskett! they don't seem to need one, as they know how to build an engine that won't leak.
