Yeah haha, what happened was I bought some new properties and they required a lot of rehab work and I just got out of cars for awhile. I just finished remodelling a 2 bedroom home (2 year project) and I finally got it rented 2 days ago. I traded in the Bentley.

Love the Wraith. I have a 2012 Aston Martin Vantage S (also black on black) and like the British Coupe look. Although the Wraith is a lot larger it still looks sleek. Nice find. Are the wheels black as well?

Heat is also my favorite movie of all time.

The wheels are painted silver but I'm getting the hood, A, roof, C pillar and trunk lid wrapped in a titanium color this Sat. IIRC only the night hawk phantom comes with factory black rims.

And the wheel caps are the ones that don't spin because Rolls Royce logos are too cool and suave to rotate? Those things make me weak in the knees.

I too thought you met an unfortunate demise, but glad you're still around to roofie young aspiring models!
I took this picture last month. (Read the vanity plate)
Does yours have the starlight headliner?

I don't like burgundy. I wanted either jubilee silver or titanium, which is what I ordered. I didn't get the starlite it's a 6k option.

Also its the most powerful car I ever owned, 624 hp from a twin turbo V12. I'll post some pics after the wrap gets installed. After this car I'd like to try drop head phantom, or cope whatever.

Thanks everyone it's good to be back. Can't wait to do my frame swap with you guys.

Probably me. I kept thinking that if I brought you up every once in a while that you might reappear. Welcome back. You've been missed, as I'm sure more than a couple of us live vicariously through your colorful exploits in Hell-A! ;-)

Sweet ride! Those are some tycoon level appointments! Glad you went RR "act like you've been there before" and not "Johnny come Bentley (lately)"! Great lines and power. Didn't the pre-80's RR spec sheets used to say "sufficient" in place of actual HP? They've come a long ways, while still returning to some of their good old ways. And better than fixed planetary hub caps are the peekaboo hood emblems! Too cool! Congratulations on both the new ride and your project completion. Now pay more attention to us, damn-it! ;-) This is you now!



Let the stories begin! Vid-link will probably take this thread to the mud-pit, but that's all good. Nothing new there. Good on ya, Neil!
