Of Course I would! I was driving my Son's Genisis home from the Toss and when we got to his home... my Grandaughters said, "You look good in that car Pops.... you're and old man!"

For that Matt you would need a driver. And I am looking for a job.

No problem.
Just swap in a small-block Mouse Motor with a 6-71 Huffer on the top! thumbs up
A polished blower and dual quads sticking out the hood would be just the tick to give coronaries to all those hoity-toity folk. grinning smiley

I picked up a Corvair engine from a guy a while back that had a blower sticking up through the hood of a Taurus wagon. Yep it was still FWD.

Pull the engine and trans, replace it with a LS and cruise on forever. For the condition of the car thats a deal if you did the repairs. If Rolls did it where ever the dealer might be , not so much of a deal.My wife likes it, I could put on a chauffeurs cap and drive her to the casino. LOL

The engine on those old Rolls cars is not the problem. The braking system is the issue. It is the most rube goldberg system I have ever seen on a vehicle. One of my customers had one and he called the Rolls dealer and asked about how much a hydraulic repair would be and was told a minimum of $10,000.
