That says and tells me nothing! That amounts to saying just because...which means it is a vague and ill formed notion of yours that lacks definition and moreover clarity. In my estimation that is a very dimly lit world you travel through .

Most folks put faith in and bestow authority to edifices. What is not realized is that if the content of the edifice is vapid then it has no meaning nor carries weight.

You called me Dim, why do you think I am Dim? where is the stupid comment or incorrect information I posted? That sounds like ranting on somebody you have know idea about and made up who they are, delusional.

Is that a Shakespeare derivative?

He said in a play or a poem that most of us travel through life on a path dimly lit by lanterns from the past. Meaning past things dictate how we move forward.

Good slam. Undeserved, yet vicious.

To see the diagram puts it into perspective. It's another order of magnitude beyond complex.
And you didn't listen... to what I said. Which means what I say in your estimation has no value. Which in my estimation makes you a fool. Thus my commentary.

My BIL had a Cloud 2, then a 3 ,and then a Silver Spur.Worked with my dad (an old school garage owner)on the S3 cooling system once to cure potential overheating.He said it was like working on a truck.
A friend had a Shadow arrived at my house one summer evening as I was watering the front lawn. There was an acrid mist emanating from under the nearside front wheel arch: I quickly hosed the entire car with as much water pressure as I could muster and saved the whole body except the nearside front wing from needing a bare metal respray.That high pressure braking system had sprung a leak and the hot fluid was vapourizing on the disc and then condensing onto the car. He reckoned my action saved him about 10000 back then over 30 years ago.

So what's the last good year for a Bentley, reliability and cost of maintenance wise? How many jars of Grey Poupon do you need per year?

The Bentley S1 (Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1), made from 1955-1959. The inline 6 models are the smoothest, most dead-reliable RR/Bentley cars, and that's the last version before the V8 engine came in. The V8 is just a reliable, but because they just stuck it in the I6's old chassis it can be awkward to work on. There was a guy in the local RROC chapter that had been driving his since new, over 50 years.

And I carried the take out packets of GP to toss at kids who invariably asked. Ironically, I never actually tried any Grey Poupon.

I am late to the party. I agree with what has been said on why they are unpopular.

1) A look under the hood sure is not inspiring to the DIYer.
2) In a rolls, you sit in the back - you are driven. If you can't afford a driver, don't bother.
3) The only reason to own a RR is for status - doesn't work if everyone knows they go for 8k
4) You look like a man of wealth and taste, wearing dead guys shoes from the thrift
5) Doesn't even go well with DRAGON AZZ PANTS
6) It is British

Over 30 years ago a Shadow was much more than the cost of a bare metal respray.Oh,I forgot, that Tabs creature ( thinks)he knoweth everything
