  • Rolls Royce Hemi

    I posted this car on my Webshots of the NSRA Richmond show on the General Forum, but I am also posting it here.

      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

      G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        Sweet. The hemi probably didn't cost much more than rebuilding the original engine. We've seen a few SBC powered Jags. I wonder if this one is subject to the gas guzzler/luxury tax?

        Check the swank Connolly leather covered "Rolls-bar."

          Silver Shadows of that vintage...late 60s to early 70s (It doesn't look to be much later because of the bumpers)...aren't that expensive, especially if you buy one with shot mechanicals.

          He spent far more on the interior than the base car.

            Only two questions.

            1) What's it run the 1/4 mile in??

            2) Can it run the 1/4 mile without spilling your champagne?

              You're right about the cost of a Rolls of that era. I saw one in a junk...er...salvage yard that I passed down near Myrtle Beach yesterday.

                  I still can't decide which of these to put in my Rolls.

                    Several years ago at Chester Bradfield's show someone brought an older Bentley that was nicely rodded- had a MoPar engine and tranny (a 340 I think).

                      LOL. You are killing me over here.

                      That is the most distinguished fuel cell I've ever seen, though.

                        The current value of those Shadows is dictated by the fact they were some of the worst vehicles RR ever offered. The treatment given to this one is the most merciful blessing it could hope for.
