    Hot Rod Rolls

    I actually don't mind the look of it. Quite slick really.

    That's not bad! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] But then again, it's just the sort of thing I'd do to a Rolls.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devilgrin.gif[/img]

    Not I, I think I'd make it the fastest car around! Forget the look, no one would be able to tell from the outside! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Thats pretty interesting. It is the most outrageous RR I have ever seen but it is at least respectfull of the marque.

    This is the one I like. I think Jay Leno now ownes it (or he built a copy of this idea).

    Re: Hot Rod Rolls

    I saw the AutoWeek thing...Personal feeling is that the original is nicer. I can appreciate certain hot rods, but this one just doesn't do it for me.

    I guess I'm just more of a traditional hot rod guy, with duece coupes and salt flat racer type cars. But, I'd always choose a LBC over a hot rod!
