It has been exactly like that in this case, too. In addition to what was
a substantial purchase price (no comment here on 14,000 GBP for a wreck)
in quick succession further 10.000-GBP-amounts had to be paid. At
present the additional amount is in excess of 50,000 GBP. The task is
not yet finished though and the calculation doesn't count thousands of
hours of labour the owner did spend on this project. No cynical
sobriquet but simply the truth: "The most expensive car is a cheap
Rolls-Royce." An obviously positive aspect is #GEN33 didn’t end
existence scrapped or cannibalized for spare parts but will remain
listed as a survivor.
On the story of this car and the efforts to achieve for her a second
lease of life a book has been compiled by the owner. "The Other Yellow
Rolls-Royce" by Neil Fraser is available directly from the author at 15
GBP plus postage; contact
firstname.lastname@example.org More than just an illustrated report about
purchase, dismantling and gradual rebuild the book informs about details
on the myriad of tasks that had to be dealt with and provides contacts
of companies specialised in certain work (such addresses might be of
interest mainly for readers from Ireland or the United Kingdom). Fair
Warning: To comply with limited funds has been imperative during this
project and thus cost-cutting solutions were considered tolerable.
Several of these were not congruent with the manufacturer's basic
philosophy to accept nothing but the very best regardless of expenses.
