Romancing the Rolls
Twelve years ago. two Doctors finished a seminar at a Hotel and were in conversation as they walked out the front door. Asking where the one had parked and he said right here. the other doctor said where? The other answered right here and pointed to a white Rolls-Royce with blue top and trim. The Hotel knowing that by putting a Rolls-Royce in front would show the public the type of customers they cater to. The other Doctor was surprised and went for a ride. He stated that he wanted one too. the same year and color. His friend took him seriously and after a two year search. found a matching White and Blue Rolls-Royce like his. Found it for sale in Palm Springs. California. A perfect dry place to locate a nice clean and nicely kept motor car. His friend drove out to Palms Springs and bought the car on the spot. They both had matching cars. Many seminars. meetings and family gatherings. the two matching Rolls-Royces would bring a crowd. and start comparing the two cars. The Doctor that owns this car. has always felt honored to have it. It was not just a car. but a symbol of the achievement of hard work. He felt he earned and enjoyed the extra special attention given to him and his family while driving it. Regardless the condition that you find any Rolls-Royce. it still represents the symbol of high achievement. because it is still a Rolls-Royce. The other Doctor moved out of state. and both Doctors are no longer able to meet up with their families and their Rolls-Royces. Going out on the town. or a drive up the coast. is still glorious. It seemed the Doctor was always Romancing the Rolls.
The Quest for Perfection in an un-perfect world
This Silver Shadow will come into it's 40th Birthday. December of 2012. Not bad for those years! They say 40 is the new 30! As we all know. time marches on and sometimes it can show. We always want to look our best. but sometimes. there are things that need some work. some tender loving care. and in some instances. this beautiful motor car. has had some issues pop up. It is only fair. that I mention these items. As you read on. things can be fixed and repaired and brought back to factory specs. The following are items that have merit to mention. We have noticed that at times. the windows will stick. sometime they all go up and down and sometimes one or two will not go up and down. We noticed the gas guage fluctuates and at times. does not always read a full tank. With so many coats of shellack over the walnut wood. some cracking can occur. The wood in the doors is perfect. but the coatings on the dash show some cracking. Remember this car is in great original shape. it is not a restored vehicle. The air conditioning works. it is cool. but you can't freeze a turkey in there. The engine does have a tapping noise. which seems to come and go. Engine works good. and plenty of compression. a good solid engine. but something to eventually look at it. but does not seem to effect driveability at all. The blue vinyl top. looks good. but is showing wear. mostly in the areas where there is some stiching. over time. vinyl tops can dry out and stretch a little. and that maybe something to look at. The "Winged Victory" mascot on the radiator cap is there and with wings spread out and ready to lead this car ahead. The Doctor's family now is grown and left home. and they are downsizing and had to make a gut wrenching decision to let go of the "love of his life. " Therefore. we present this car to you in this auction. to take home and cherish it as these owners have done for forty years.
