Would this make a good daily driver?

69 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow


Needs a little TLC, but nothing too horrible.


I know it isn't as fast/powerful and won't handle all that well, but would be a pretty cool daily!


Thoughts?

As long as you have the cash reserve and the patience to sort it all out, I think it would be a GREAT daily driver.

That would be interesting. If it checks out ok and as truly on;y needing minor issues -- and you can wrench on it yourself with access to parts, why not?

I think Al knows about these beasts...

No, no, no, NO. Have you ever driven one?
Quiet like a tomb, but the thing just DOESN'T like ANY kind of corner.
