sorry for delayed reply i also didn't notice the message.
You are right you will see lots of cars on for month after month I went to see a turbo r in Derby he was asking about £13k and was an absolute shed! I also went to Aylsbury and that was total scrap! ,some people think that a RR/B is worth its weight in gold whatever condition.
As you can see I went miles and miles to find mine ,I would advise against this now as most bargains have sold by the time you get there if any good or sheds if still there ,and a waste of time and money, just limit your search to say 50ml.
Hope that helps
Also, I get the impression they generally dont sell quickly, is that right? Over my time looking, i do see the same cars sat there for a long time. Do you think most sellers ask for too much money, or is it there just is not much market for them currently?
Mike, thanks for the kind message. sorry I only just noticed it, as i didn't receive a notification.
I am still browsing at Bentley and Rolls online. They all look so nice on the screen, but i do need to start going to see some in the flesh to get a reality check. I did have close look at a couple at a local classic car show. 2x Silver Shadows, which are completely different cars of course, but was nice to get up close.
There isn't really any rush at all to buy one, but its a break through to finally admit to myself i do really want one, probably more than any other car at present. There is some cash in the bank, and more importantly, i have received the blessing from the Boss Lady! I can make space in the garage to keep it dry too. So most of the sign's are good. Only thing lacking is time to go and see any right now. Theres even on 10 miles down the road in Spalding, but not ventured over yet.
Thanks for the tip off on Flying Spares/ Turbos. I will check it out.
Have you bought that Bentley yet?
Sounds like you need a trip to Flying spares, I bought mine from there and been fairly pleased so far.
They have nice Mulsanne turbo's from £2750.
If you go there mention me to them.
Turbo's are the best more power and economy and easier to sell if you want to , just look at the differnce in prices for turbo and non turbo!
