An Invaluable Guide
on 24 April 2010
This is an invaluable guide to buying and owning the ultimate dream car. Malcolm Bobbitt's book is an unbiased and honest assessment of the joys, and otherwise, of the purchase and ownership of a Rolls Royce or a Bentley. It is, for anyone not closely familiar with these marques, quite simply priceless and could save you from being carried away by your dreams into problems and possible penury.
Having, in my time, driven vehicles from most manufacturers, including Rolls Royce and Bentley, sitting in and driving the best car in the World is something I shall always remember with great pride and affection. It was this that gave me the idea that, one day, I would like to own one. Familiar though I am with the mechanical side of these marques, Malcolm Bobbitt's book points up the fact that, at the end of the day that they are as vulnerable to rust, rot and poor maintenance as all other cars. It also points up the fact that "routine" maintenance is greater than with most cars - not to mention more expensive, of course!
I won't say that this book has punctured my dream, but it has given me much food for thought and for that I sincerely thank the author.
If you are even thinking of buying a Rolls Royce or Bentley motor car this book really is, quite simply, the essential guide.
