1976 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow I, Beautiful car in fair to good condition, everything is original Powered by a V8
engine paired to a 3 speed automatic transmission. The car has 26,952 original miles.

BODY: The overall body condition is an 8-9 with two small minor dents. One on the leading edge of the left rear
wheel well opening and the other on the right rear fender at and below the side running light. The paint is
scratched on the right front passenger door with no other paint scratches. I expect the dents can be removed using
paintless dent removal. All of the glass is in excellent condition.

PAINT: The overall paint condition is a 3-4. I found one deep scratch on the right front passenger door. Most of
the horizontal surfaces show light cracking much like lacquer paint used to do in times past. There is some
discoloration on the hood and trunk. I believe this paint is two-stage either acrylic or urethane? Given the body
is in such great condition, I believe a respray of the car with very minimal bodywork is needed.

TOP: The vinyl top needs a complete replacement. There is evidence of surface rust under areas that are exposed but
I could not find any areas that were rusted through. Somewhat normal for vinyl tops that are 45 years old.

CHROME: The chrome is in very good condition. An exception would be some light pitting on the front bumper and
light scratches on the rear bumper. The rear bumper rubber on the left side is damaged and will need to be

DASH/INSTRUMENTS: The overall dash is in good condition. The area of the ignition switch has most of the paint
chipped off from the key ring. There are two radios both am/fm in the car. There is also evidence that the car may
have been equipped with an early mobile phone mounted between the front seats. There are4 small holes and a large
hole in the console consistent with a radio/telephone in addition to a cellular antenna on the right rear quarter
panel. Due to the battery/not running issue I was unable to test any of the instruments or features.

INTERIOR/UPHOLSTERY: The seats are free of any tears and are not damaged in any way. The dash cap has a couple of
scratches as does the right A pillar that look like an animal may have caused them. The door upholstery is also
complete and without tears or blemishes. The wood garnish finish is showing cracking and some of the urethane is
chipping off of a couple of doors and is faded on the other doors. The bottom windshield garnish is pitted. I
believe all 5 garnish pieces will need resurfacing. The headliner is intact and in good condition. The package tray
shows evidence of staining and will need attention. Carpeting seems good in all areas except under the driverís
footwell. I found a plastic for sale sign under the floor mat and it had trapped a significant amount of
moisture/heat, (muffler directly below?) causing some of the floor insulation and soundproofing to deteriorate.
There are two remaining very thick floormats in the trunk; one is fairly faded and the other is in fair condition.

TIRES/HUBCAPS: The hubcaps are in good condition with little to no rash on any. The tires are Michelin and have
excellent tread.

TRUNK: The carpeting is in pretty good shape except for the piece that covers the battery compartment. The lower
area of battery area carpeting is deteriorating and will have to be repaired or replaced. The tools that come with
the car are mostly available except for the case that holds them. The jack is included and stored in the trunk

BMW preparing two concepts for Villa d'Este

Thu, 20 Mar 2014

Every spring, the finest automobiles ever to grace tarmac gather on the shores of Lake Como for the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este. It's a chance for the most beautiful classics to compete for awards and for automakers and design studios to show off their concept cars under the soft light of the Italian sun. But while most of the vehicles old and new that show up for the concours are ones we've seen before, BMW takes things a step further.
As patron of the concorso d'eleganza for the past ten years, BMW regularly cooks up something new for the glamorous extravaganza. Last year it teamed up with Pininfarina for the Gran Lusso Coupé and revealed it alongside the Concept 90 motorcycle. The year before that came the BMW Zagato Coupe, preceded by the 328 Hommage and the M1 Hommage (pictured above) before it.
The theme for this year's event is the Roaring Twenties. BMW may not have been known back then on the same level as Bugatti or Duesenberg, but Rolls-Royce sure was.

Is your brain predisposed to make you love Rolls-Royce?

Wed, 19 Jun 2013

XCAR has taken a look at what could very well be one of the most quintessential British cars ever built: the 1973 Rolls-Royce Corniche. The question at hand is whether or not expensive luxury items like artisan foods, designer clothing and yes, high-end automobiles are worth their monetary cost. Do they bring some undefined additional value to the table over their low-buck counterparts, or are they simply an excellent way to part a fool from his dollar bills? While the video below can't comment on four-course meals or $400 jeans, our valiant host does have a word or two on the joy a Rolls-Royce can bring to your life.
That's even true of a model like the '73 Corniche. Built during one of the darker days of the company's history, the convertible was designed and manufactured by an automaker on the verge of collapse. Still, it manages to hold on to that essential spirit of luxury so crucial to the Rolls-Royce brand. Check out the video below to see what we mean.

Rolls-Royce bestows Canton Glory Ghost upon Guangzhou

Sun, 15 Dec 2013

Wonder why Rolls-Royce makes so many special editions for the Chinese market? Probably because China is fast becoming its largest market, with the dealerships in Beijing and Shanghai regularly proving able to move more high-end metal than any other Rolls dealer in the world. Little wonder then that, less than two months after releasing the Golden Sunbird edition, Rolls-Royce Bespoke is back again with another special Ghost just for China.
This time it's called the Canton Glory edition. It was introduced recently at Auto Guangzhou, and pays tribute to the Canton Tower in the same city. Two examples were made with a two-tone color scheme contrasting burgundy with either a blueish silver or white. Other features include Guangzhou's Five Rams emblem in the coachline, veneer panels, headrests and dashboard.
We don't doubt Rolls will find (or probably already has found) a pair of Chinese industrialists to gladly take these special editions home. But for those looking for their own unique touches, the British automaker has also brought its Bespoke Atelier to China for the first time, outlining the range of possibilities open to their moneyed customers.
