check out my new ride!

I had a little extra in my savings account, so I decided to pick up this bad boy:

I'd wish!
Actually, my usual parking spaces were taken at Union Station one morning, so what better company for my Passat than to park it next to this Phantom.  Though I'm usually hesitant and avoid parking my car next to hulking large vehicles such as trucks, vans and SUVs, I decided to take my chances  this time 8)

This Rolls participated in the recent Players Poker Run and the day before was covered all over with round yellow stickers.  It's surely a beast, the wheel wells are actually taller than the hood of my car and hood stands almost a foot higher than mine.  It definately has presence, but seeing the intimidating front end up close in person was a bit of a disappointment, other than the retractable hood ornament it looked a bit crude and lacked the kind of detail you expect in a $340,000 car.
The floating centercaps on the wheels (which keeps the RR logo always standing upright) is a neat trick borrowed from spinners -- who would have thunk?!
It's certainly I car I wouldn't mind having if I was obscenely rich. 8)

Nice! I'd sport it. I did spot a brand new (w/temp tags) '06 ('07?) M5 yesterday. I wanted to walk in to that little law firm it was parked outside and ask if he could just start it :D

That car has the only form of spinners that I find respectable.

Nice Pic and good find.
