Jan, who was the owner of Ascot was a great guy. Down to earth and straight forward. I once went up and tried out a Rolls and a Bentley as I had thought about buying one instead of my usual Benzes. The sales guy took me for a ride in two of them. When I got back, Jan said "you are too young to drive a Rolls, it's a old mans car, stick with at BMW or Benz till you hit 50 or more." I was 31 at the time.

Believe it or not, every Rolls they had contained a jar of Grey Poupon in the compartment.

I loved the dealership. At least you could check out/drive some real unique cars.

I also wanted to mention we actually had a Ferrari dealer and one great mechanic in Pittsburgh at one time. Kind of sad our region can't have all that. DC, might actually be the best place to go for fine autos.

Well I am gaining on 50 and it is getting time. I need to drive in a more gentle car than my European Spots Sedan. My back and such hurts a bit and I need comfort. A Rolls would fit the bill. It is time.

What job do you have in this region to be able to afford a Rolls Royce?

It shouldn't be beyond the realm of possibility for a number of people in the region to have the means to purchase a rolls royce (starting around 250K new) by the time they are 50. Whether that is a wise use of one's money is a completely different story.

You are correct UK on the buyers. All types.
You could always count on seeing one of the many sports figures. The one day I was there, Rod Woodson was buying a Bentley Convertible, but there are plenty of doctors, attorneys, business owners, CEOs, COOs, and so forth buying too! They might not be using it to go back and forth to work everyday, but weekends, playtime, and special occasions, it comes out to show off.

There are always great incentives/financing offered on the "high luxury" cars, and many still do the leases, which brings the monthly payments down.

I'm afraid you may have to take a step down and consider a Bentley. It's almost as good as RR and has a dealer in pgh.
