I wouldn't mind one for cruising, not for sporting. 380 000 for it, but you get tons of luxury (chassis flex, too, although its well damped) Anyone else like it (for what it is, not a sports car)

hahah, it should!! I heard a whole bunch of stories about how Rolls-Royce have a life-time warranty, one of them was:

This man's 1970 Rolls-Royce broke down on the highway near chicago, he thought that it was an old car so it had to break down. He called Rolls-Royce and they sent a tow truck for it, and they told him that he would have it fixed by the next day. The man thought he would have to pay lots of money for getting it fixed and was thinking about the bill all night. The next day when he woke up the Rolls-Royce was parked in his drive way, with a letter and his keys in the mail slot saying "Rolls-Royce automobiles don't break down"

I don't remember where i read this but it was written by the daughter of the man

It is possible.

The new Silver Seraphs are expected to go 1 million miles.
The first (I think) Silver ghost is still around and running.

It's a legend. It never happened.

I have a friend who has been researching these kinds of automotive legends and this one's one of the most commonly spread. It's not a true story.

Hudson, please tell your friend to publish them. That'd make a good book. I'd pick one up.

I would take one, but in the same token, I would take a Bentley over the Corniche.

When I look at Rolls Royce's I always think that some hoodlum is going to come up and pull the hood ornament off. I mean something like that would probably go for a lot of money in the collector world...same this with Mercedes...except I've seen people strip them. They kinda just pop off. Lemme know what you think.
