NotoriousLuxury

What does Rolls Royce, Bentley, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Brabus, Aston Martin & other distinguished automobile manufacturers have in common? ME! I am going to take you on a voyage that you will never forget. I will show you the creme of the creme, automobiles people rarely get a glimpse of…. and they will be delivered to you through this Blog.

Each automobile that will be the subject, will be presented to you in a rudely elegant manner! I am the quintessential bad boy when it comes to luxury cars, and studying them. If you have a special car that you would like to see featured, give me a shout. This is what this blog is all about YOU!

I will be your tour guide exhibiting thoroughbred  motor cars that are available only in small numbers. From precise German engineering, to pains taking British craftsmanship, and other manufacturers around the globe that have made their Grande Marques in history. These my fellow car enthusiasts will be as close as your monitor!

Ciao!

  3. How can I buy one of these fine looking car

  4. Those are extremely rare. Are you sure you want one of those? Currently, they are not a valuable automobile because of the Northstar engine and the additional bodywork by Superior Coach of Lima Ohio. These things are so awful even Superior is tight lipped about them. Those things can take you to the cleaners. The reason you do not find them easily is because they are in scrap yards. Have you tried looking at junk yards? I am not being funny. They are deteriorating rapidly. Cadillac dealers will NOT sell them because of what I mentioned. The Fleetwood Limited has turned out to be the bastard at the Cadillac family reunion. If I run across any I will let you know. You have to be extremely careful purchasing them. Corrosion could be lurking under the vinyl roof. Corrosion gets into the welds the coachbuilder used and they can be safety hazzards. The car was cut in many locations to add the extra inches. Make sure to inspect the underside too. Survivors will most definitely become classics because of the issues with them. I bought the standard 1999 DeVille in 1999 and let me tell you, it was the worst Cadillac I ever owned, The 1997-1999 Cadillac DeVilles went from the showroom to the scrap yards in one svelte swoop! Have you ever wondered why you don’t see 1997-1999 Cadillacs? They are in junk yards, seriously. Check with scrap yards on the internet and you will find them, but I am telling you now, you can buy a very nice used Rolls Royce for what you will end up restoring the Fleetwood Limited!

  5. Greetings!
    I love reading your reviews and musings about the grand automobiles of the world!
    I am 61 years old and have been fascinated or addicted to lavish auto carriages since childhood. Cadillacs and Rolls Royce’s were my playtime passions.
    The is a great marque that I’ve not found in your illustrious reviews: Facel Vega.
    When I was a kid my mom test drove a stunning silver model and commented: FAcel Vega! “If you don’t know what it is…don’t ask!!!
    Perhaps the grand French marque will find a distinguished place in your collection?
    Best regards,

    • Hello Chris Bridges!!! I hear ya LOUD and clear! Facel Vega “Excellence” is my all-time favorite French automobile! I fell in love with it in high school, a neighbor drove one. It intrigued me because there were NO MORE like it in the USA at the time! I put your suggestion at the top of the ‘to-do’ list. The Facel Vega will be most satisfying to research and to find photos.

      I LOVE classic automobiles, as witnessed by my site. Finding photos and specifications on rare automobiles could be compared to an exclusive European road rally…clues lead to photos back to specifications, then like magic – I find the perfect pictures. I don’t like to present dinky little out of focused photographs. I provide my audience with enough to satisfy their curiosity.

      Make sure to keep coming back, I am definitely taking your suggestion seriously and already have the gears in my tiny brain turning. I have 2 classic Cadillac stories, the new Rolls-Royce Phantom, and another editorial placing the RR Phantom alongside the Bentley Mulsanne. Notice…I didn’t say to place the RR AGAINST the Bentley Mulsanne? They are equals therefore they cannot compete. However…they can be contrasted side by side to strut their stuff which will prove their own superiority. The Facel Vega will definitely follow suit. I like to alternate between domestic and foreign classics to keep my readers guessing what will come next!

      Thanks Chris Bridges for the idea! I love it when a reader takes the time for a request! And at the risk of being totally politically incorrect…”MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!”
      Greg!
