1922 Rolls Royce!
holy. fucking. jesus!!!!!
i didnt read *much* or the posts, but i can assume this wasnt a "while you wait" detail
Wow, thats just amazing!
wow that's awesome
Only 6000 or so of them made I do believe. With very few left intact. People kept killing themselves because of the overwhelming power (~50hp) so they stopped producing them lol.
Saw it over on MOL. Amazing stuff. One of the owners at my company has a Silver Ghost so I forwarded it on to him. Apparently snobbery is rampant among classic RR owners as he sneered at some of the techniques used to detail the vehicle.
Been following it and watching the progress.
Did he ever say what he made off of it?
I just saw that over there last night
I believe the body panels are aluminum.
You will find that with any classic car enthousiasts. And the more rare or expensive, the worse it gets.
Everyone oohs and ahhhs over it, untill they start to ask how they did it. THen when you start describing process and technique, they get all pissy becuase its not what "they would do". Well, obviously, becuase their cars looks 11ty billion times better then yours, which looks like shit.
Its jsut aprt of rolling in that circle of cars. Everyone is an asshole. Well, unless your name is Jay Leno, then everyone loves to hate you, becuase you talk to the commoners as if you care. Which, he actually does.
Speaking of Leno, when I was invited out to Meguiars back in 2004, they took us (several detailers from around the country) in a limo to Jay Leno's Big Dog Garage. Just an incredible collection--and we weren't allow to take any pictures.
Yeah, he is preaty picky about that. Becuase he has alot of one off shit in there. And not to mention a preaty beefy security system. Of which taking pictures would not be worth his while.
I think it was Cycle World magazine that did an article there not to long ago about some new middle weight bikes, and even they had to only shoot from certain angles, and certain focal points.
Yeah, he's had a couple TV shows he's been on that shot inside his garage/shop, and I noticed they were very careful about what and where they showed. I'd love to get in there sometime to look around. There, and the GM Heritage Collection warehouse in Detroit -- I've heard that's another awesome place to visit, since it's the burial grounds for many of the one-off concepts and radical test mules, as well as first/last-of-model production cars.
Holy shit that ghost is crazy
Jaw dropping work!!! I'll bet they had some sore hands/arms after all of that work. Thanks for sharing that link with us, Scott.
