Hahah, seriously ive noticed down here how many 60-70's Rolls Royce's there are down here all going from around 10g-25g. Dont have the address right now but there is a company that has been converting Rolls Royce engines to Chevy small block and Cadillac 500ci engines for years now......im thinkin maybe a Silver Shadow or something along that lines in decent condition (running) and swapping a 500ci thats been worked on a bit...maybe 450-500hp.....rip out that 8 thousand dollar replacement brake system, baer brakes.....Custom Deep Candy Purple with silver flakes and some chrome dish wheels with giant whitewalls......

Too bad its just a dream now...but I think for under 30grand this can be done after finding the right Roller.......now to save the pennies. :)

Good luck with that. I've seen a couple jags with 500s, never a rolls.

i've seen some older (70s and 80s) nice cars (rolls, jag, porche) going for good prices. would be pretty cool to roll in a rolls royce or jag xke

Older Brit cars for the most part are extremely cheap considering what you get for the money....when looking for Caddys I was looking for late 80's and early 90's XJ6's to implant them with a SBC engine.
