    That is just ugly!
    I would love one of those old Jags that Morse used to have.

    I agree. May's comments were just good tv or journalism.

    My father in law has a 1970s Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 11. He probably drives it around 1k miles per year, only in the summer when it's dry.

    It costs him £150 per year to insure, nothing to tax, doesn't need MOT'ing and his only big cost is fuel as its so thirsty.

    Repair costs are minimal, mainly because hardly anything seems to go wrong with it, but also because he was a mechanic by trade before he retired and is therefore able to fix most things that do go wrong himself.

    When he needs parts, most are commonly used on older mainstream vehicles. There is also a network of specialists that can often refurb parts that are no longer available, like the speedo for example.
