1978 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow II
Slight wear on the seats. Routine maintenance. Oil Change.
I would have to agree with the mechanics who have told me that this is a car to be 'driven'. I am on my 3rd Rolls, and I presently own a Corniche, and previously owned a Spur. I had always wanted a Silver Shadow which is why I just this one. This car is very well built, and IF maintained, performs well. It is a solid, stately, and well made car. If someone purchasing an older one has had problems, one should look to the maintenance records on the vehicle. You don't just purchase a Rolls without considering it's history. I have enjoyed each and every Rolls I have purchased, and will always own one. While it is true that maintenance is higher than that of other cars; the performance, the handling, and the comfort of the ride far exceeds that of any car I have ever driven. My only remaining wish is that I knew how to perform the maintenance myself.
The more you drive them, the better they perform. Period.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
