So this guy is selling a 1979/80 Rolls Royce for $6000.00. (LOL! I know right? ) This is an older guy who is sick and desperate for cash. I forgot how many miles it has on it. Probably a lemon but this could be a dope project car. Or maybe not?

Anybody know anything about Rolls Royces? Should I cop? I wanna make some babies in the back of it! smokeyface

You're going to be looking at $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ to make any repairs. Doubt it's a lemon, those things don't leave the factory unless they're 100%. But as I've mentioned, with the age, and the premium make, that's a lot for any sort of maintenance.

People forget that an expensive car will always be expensive.

you can also get a 1987 BMW M5 for around that price. i can also guarantee that you'll spend roughly that each year in maintaining that car alone.

now take into consideration that the rolls royce retailed for roughly 4-5 times that.

i never said the maintenance would be 25k, just saying considering a bmw sports car costs several thousand a year to maintain, a rolls royce should be at least a few more.

This is funny i was actually thinking about the same thing when i saw an older guy in a suit cruising in his late 80s early 90s Rolls and i was like hmm i wonder if he wants to sell it? But yeah i wouldnt mind owning an oldschool Rolls and slam the fuck out of it tho. Even if it was a Lemon you can always drop a fully built LS1 or an LSx into that bitch. If you want buy it and flip that bitch if you dont want to keep it.

If you think that's a "good deal".
You'd shit bricks if you saw what came in during cash for clunkers a few years back.
Gov. paid out less than that for newer ferrari's.

This doesn't really fall into that category. A lot of Rolls Royce from the 70's-80's are under $15k. If it's a late 70's/early 80's Rolls with 70k-80k miles, that price is pretty accurate.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

Why did they depreciate so much?

People underestimate the cost of maintenance so the car is constantly being resold by people who could never afford the car in the first place..

I see a lot of old black guys in my city driving Rolls Royces. It's kind of cool. I prefer older Bentleys myself. I saw a rolls for 13k at the salvation army car lot.

Yeah, maintaining them is what breaks the bank.

You can pick up a 2008 Mercedes S550 for around $50k, and 3 years ago the MSRP was $85k. All those European luxury cars depreciate the minute you drive off the lot and they just keep plunging. You can find a 2008 7 series for around $40k.
