I liked the one at the auto show with a polished stainless hood. Don't know what model it was, but was pretty cool as long as I don't have to keep it clean.

I'm kind of partial to the 1918 20-20............ ... Back when the suspension was all needle bearings with a central oiling system.... Mechanical power brakes.... Syncromesh transmission..........

None. I've always hated them (And Bentleys.) The front end on that new Phantom borders on making me ill.
Years ago when I was an installer, we used to get them in the shop pretty often for audio upgrades. At the time, Rolls thought it was acceptable to give you the same POS Delco radio as you would get in a Pontiac.
Even if I won mega-lottery $$, I wouldn't even consider one.

02 corniche. My dad has been eyeing it or a bentley for a while but needs a kick in the butt to actually get one ( a decent price from a fellow boater will help too)
