  1. both are such beautiful machines real trinkets of history but don't know why but something's drawing me more to the Rolls Royce she's got something I just find appealing don't know although I am just like James in certain ways lol

  2. "If you have a dictator in the back and the terrorists come, you want to get away quickly"
    uhm, isnt a dictator a terrorist?:)
    What he meant to say is "If you have a dictator in the back and the Americans come" :ddd

  3. The Mercedes is a much superior vehicle, it's only downside is that if something related to the hydraulic system fails it'll be a pain in the ass and your wallet to fix it. I would still buy one in a heartbeat though! 😀

  4. I remember trying to push start and older Saab 900, was a friend (a girl) that never done a push start… So every time I got up to speed she put in first gear but slipped the clutch (eased it gently up). Tried to tell her once, twice, the 8 time my back/legs where pretty much gone and I almost could not move for a week after that…

  5. I prefer american 50s and 60s luxury cars more than european luxury cars. These two cars look stylish for sure but what european company other than rolls royce or mercedes made big cars in the 60s and 70s?

  6. Merc made a lightweight "racing" version of that (and it's successor). It was nicknamed the "pig" or "sow" or something. Anyway turned out to not be much good on a race track so they sold it to a tyre company which used it for testing aircraft tyres!
