    and I Love It!

    This was a great find. Lived in the care of one family and followed them from the Hamptons to Hillsborough Heights. A superb example and when you look through its service history it's obvious they cared a great deal. My Lord, It makes my Ferrari service binder blush.

    I scoured the net for this exact color combination and the magnolia leather and rare wood details just ties it all in.

    Ill share some more photos if you don't mind.

    Thanks to those who gave me great advice.

    Welcome to the club. RR ownership is almost as satisfying as Ferrari ownership! Please make sure you join the RROC (RR Owners Club). They have some great activities and a great forum for good advise and help when you need it. Also they are a great bunch to hang out with as well. My wife and I are fairly active in the club and really enjoy the tours when we can go. It's a great add on with your Ferrari club activities as well. Here are our two babies. They're oldies but definitely goodies.

    Well done! Enjoy your PMC. I just gave up my search (temporarily) for a Corniche. It was like finding a Unicorn.

    Beautiful! I am an RROC Member and spent about a year trying to decide which PMC I really wanted. I wanted them all, especially your vintage but over time I narrowed it down to the '96-'99 MY. I almost purchased a Silver Cloud and was in love with a Wraith but in the end this Spur grabbed me and I'm glad I gave it a go. I'd like to own other vintages so I may sample and then pass for another, although this may be difficult.

    Perhaps I'll see you in Asheville.

    I decided on '99 Arnage- X01392. I was also lucky to find a well cared for example. And, yes, I was searching for a while as well. Part of it was deciding on a model! The Spirit/Spur series and the Bentleys of that era are magnificent. And I aim to one day venture into Shadow and Cloud series ownership. Like you, I wish to own them all!

    I was focused on the '99-00 arnage / seraph with the BMW engine since i was warned that the 6.75 during that time had head gasket issues but i just couldnt find one. Yours is gorgeous! I think i may go '08 Arnage for the next one. Or, go with one like yours, then take the leap up. Or hell, go back down to the S1 or SC. Asheville may help with thise choices.
