random thought- what if freightrain won the lottery- would he by driving around in something like this?

Actually, I did own a '55 Rolls Royce. Inherited from a close friend.

Fellow in the middle(Bill) left it to me back in the early 90's. Here we are in Florida picking it up. He rebuilt the engine and got it running again. It sill needed tons of work and at the time I was not in the position to keep it. The fellow on the right is BIll Haynes, of the Haynes Criss Cross directory fame(it was the reverse phone book where you look up a number to get an address). Bill and Bill were close friends and we stopped for a short visit while down in Stewart.

Me back when I was young, dumb and full of ambition....LOL!! My "Chaser" T shirt, that was a local band that had a few one hit wonders on the radio back in the late 80's.

Car was RH drive, which woulda been cool to have. Leather interior with the fold down tables in the back. Just kinda crusty underneath with lots of mechanical issues to deal with.

When I was about 19 I also had long dark hair and a beard.

Just hadn't Rolls-Royce.

But I had diesel Mercedes :)

Great story about Rolls-Royce.

Tom's collage is awesome also :thumb:

I kept a copy of the original title with MY name on it just for a keepsake. I also found a Franklin Mint model very similar to that car. I tried to keep the original owner manual, but the purchaser insisted I give it with the car(darnit). The original manual was written as such as it was talking to the "driver", not persay the owner. Those cars were OVER engineered with self lubrication systems and all kinds of trinkets to maintain.
