My late uncle had a client & friend with one of these. He borrowed it for a few days as a favor for some reason when I was in high school. I remember him driving to the local coffee shop, and the men there joking about his “new car.”
The older waitress leaned to the window to see it, and remarked, “I don’t know what that thing is, but it’s the ugliest car I’ve ever seen.”
Later that day, a light rain fell. The wiper blade popped off the arm, which made a nice arc-shaped groove in the windshield glass. His friend laughed it off, since Rolls replaced the brand new glass for free.
