They see me rollin…..

Custom 1974 Silver Shadow, owned and customized by Mike Skinner (The Streets) in the mid 2000s.  Original Pirate Material, first album, is one of my favourite albums from the 2000s.  At the time I shared a house with 2 college buddies, each of us bought the CD/Album which obviously didn’t make much sense but was an endorsement of its popularity in the household.  

The car was sold on a car auction site today, for the price of white gold Daytona (on a bracelet).

I’m thinking for this one something all gold, and maybe with diamonds, would be a good watch pairing.  Or maybe an Urwerk !

Like watches, you don’t need to go crazy to be cool.

Dirty but clean. Love an old Rolls.

Yeah. Hard to beat an old Rolls like this.

There’s an all original one of these in the garage I use, and while it’s great I think I’d be much more drawn to this one here.

Well played !

A 'status' car....

is all it can ever aspire to be ....

If they were buying a Grand Seiko...

...they would send their 'people' inside. They wouldn't be caught dead buying something so common : )

Yes, a little OTT but that’s the point right.

I think the wheels make it. The interior was heavily modified too.

Justin Bieber has this one …

Love these older RRs 👌🏻 ...  

In your garage?

Yup 😉

Was just in a Rolls yesterday...

Took a ride in a Ghost to dinner yesterday, still the finest machine on the road.

You guys have some fancy Ubers out West !

I’ve been in a Rolls only a handful of times, all courtesy of a hotel I stayed in several times in the 2000s.

Ahh... Here's a Rolls/Hotel story...

 By: patrick_y : May 20th, 2023-03:24
Ahh, not an Uber, I just have a lot of very special friends, like yourself! Just before the pandemic, I was walking with my friend, we were sharing a room together at the same hotel in Los Angeles. And I told him to be on the lookout for a house car to pi... 

Cool story.

The Phantom is what I was in those times I believe. I know zero about RR really, so any car would have impressed me ! 😂

The previous generation Phantom was something really special..

 By: patrick_y : May 20th, 2023-20:44
The previous generation Phantom, known as the Phantom VII (seventh generation) came out around 2003 and left us around 2017 or so. The car was made in a completely different way than any other car. First, you had an entire aluminum architecture that was b... 

More than anyone needs to know 😂

But thanks for writing. The model name Wraith never crossed my view before, even though I’ve seen a few around. It’s kind like Ferrari, it’s irrelevant to me which model it is as I’ll never own one. It’s good enough to just know it’s a Ferrari or a RR. ... 


 By: patrick_y : May 20th, 2023-21:41
But people used to buy RRs just because it was a special brand, but the cars were awful to drive, terrible seating position, etc. For me, I really have to know the mechanics about the car - especially since I wouldn't want to be stranded! You can buy watc...
