I decided to use it because I restored a 1974 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow that was almost ready for the junk heap. I didn't know what I was getting myself into and found out what the expression "Money Pit" really meant. It's finally restored after a long three years. I probably wouldn't have ever bought it and restored it if it didn't belong to a famous person and I thought it would be really cool to own it. The person I bought it from is John Travolta.

I would imagine you hard work has been worth the time, especially since it is a RR Silver Shadow.
Welcome to BC!

A couple was driving their RR through Kenya, and it encountered problems. They called RR and a mechanic was flown out to make the needed repairs immediately. Having returned home, the couple kept looking for a bill from RR for the help. After three months, they had not gotten it, and called RR, explaining what had happened. At the end of the conversation, the man at RR said in an impeccable Bristish accent, "Sir, there cannot be a bill. Rolls Royces do not break down."
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
