The last Rolls Royce I liked was the 1960s model with the twin nested headlights on either side of the grill, totaling four. Silver Cloud I think. Even bought a dinky toy metal model of it when I was a kid. I had good taste in toys! <gg>

I collect model cars and still have that one in silver.

Also worked for a bit at Grand Touring Automobiles authorized Rolls dealer in Ontario/Toronto. Ended up working/managing a pre-owned dealer, owner collected and liked having RR's around at one point we had 15 in storage at a warehouse. For driving late 80's Spirit, Bentley Turbo R and liked the Seraph. Left before the Phantom came out. I hated driving our Silver Shadow's or the pig of a car Camargue.

My fav. for looks and used one as my take home ride; 1990 Corniche III, at clubs and other places if scene in that car instant respect. I wanted to check out the new at the time C5 Vette and one Chev dealer had one hidden in their garage. Walked in the showroom wearing T-shirt and shorts, looked like a bum and the sales guy treated me like one. The Vette is only shown to serious/known customers and the brochure's are just for those people as well, least that's what the sales jack off told me! The guy followed me outside and as soon as he spots that I'm driving the Corniche, he races over to offer not only a peak at the new Vette, a test drive. said: "sorry I've decided on a Ferrari" and drove off!!!!!

Does this have anything to do with your user name?

Took my cousins two kids to Disney World, staying at the Sheraton Four Points became awsome when Crazyhorse passed over the pool! Ended up at the Kissimmee airport for most of the trip (also Hooters up the street), did the intro flight and the Merlin sounds even better from inside the cockpit!

Ha ha, good story about the dealership. I believe one of the Beatles drove a Rolls right through a dealership window when faced with a similar sales goof, then said "I'll take it, fix the scratches and sweep up the broken glass."
