    1937 Rolls that is. Sweet engine with a million (24) spark plugs in it. He had a 73 E-type V-12 next to it under a car cover. The 37 Rolls was found in a river bank along the Mississippi five years after it was lost to a flood. This owner saved it and restored it 30 years ago. He also had a 55 t-bird rotting out in front of the garage which is why I stopped.

    Check out the "Rolls" golf cart he has parked in his living room!

  2. Interesting how the guy takes very good care of his Rollers, but lets the T-Bird go to Hell!

    In all fairness the guy broke his back but he has still been going out once in a while and cutting and welding on the car. He showed me how he had recently cut the Driver's side rocker off and has patched the left front fender and some of the work looked maybe a month or two old.
