Well.. For anybody who REALLY wants a Phantom but can't afford one. :p
It's not all that close but not too far either...

...or this guy will build you one that's pretty darn close, actually...

Interesting. I guess it makes sense that people might buy those. In the pictures, it looks pretty good.

The guy who builds them lives near me so I'll go take a look soon. I don't think his work comes cheap. The cars are actually built from old Rolls Royce parts..
I guess they've finally improved the Rolls kits but, I don't know, I kinda like the older ones better myself....

Wow, a Volkswagen Beetle Rolls! :p
I like that 300C ! Only the back window gives a clue. I think that the front grille rides a little too high. Need to shave like 2" off the bottom. The chrome hood cap seems to be a bit too high up. They are more low profile these days. I think I like it more that the Imperial...looks-wise...

wow, i guess alot of pople can't get girls and don't have money for those cars these days ;)
The lines on the first car look "off" to me. The second link looks amazing. It looks like that guy puts a lot of time into the body work to make them look right. And it's got a hemi. :sneaky:
Wow, a Volkswagen Beetle Rolls! :pYeah, pretty classy, huh? :D

Second one looks OK. First one the rear windows and roofline give it away.
I don't like kit cars like that, the ones that try to look like something they're not... I saw a "Lamborghini Countach(sp.)" once... only problem was it sounded like a front engine 4 banger.
Too bad the interior of the 300 needs MAJOR overhaul to meet the luxury apearance :D

I'm so sick of people building these things that totally rip of an awesome car!!! :banghead:
