amazes me what some offer for sale and what some possibly buy...I just don't get it...looking at the latest offerings in the Shannons Melb auction ...a HZ prem with expected price same as Rolls Royce..both vehicle condition reports suggest decent cars..the Rolls was a $140K new compared to Prem about $10K...still thinking the 6.7 litre hand built RR must be a much better car than the 253 HZ..??.

The Rolls would be a much better car than the HZ.
The problem with a Rolls is the cost of ownership. My dad had a mate who bought his wife a new Rolls Royce for Christmas in 1971. The first service cost $4,000, which would have just about bought a new HQ Premier.

Old is good.

yes true when considering original purchase price and cost of dealerships etc...but now 30 -40 years on the depreciation and therefore value of the RR has dropped astronomically...a complete 6.7 engine can now be bought for $1500 more than a complete 308...so the price of parts would def have a premium over a Holden and be more time consuming to get...but not so over the top if it's a Sunday cruiser and you get a good running car to begin with...I'm feeling tempted...

Is that the same guy that also has a collection of L300 vans on the way out to Warragamba?

I've been past a couple of times and wondered how someone ends up with a collection of Rolls Royces and L300 vans

I could understand the L300s if he was a hot rodder.
L300 front ends are supposed to be popular in hot rods. They have rack and pinion steering and a Ford bolt pattern.

I have seen a bloke selling a bucket of rust with Monaro Id tags sitting on top on eBay before. People just want the tags. Don't know how much they went for though.
