1990 Mulsanne S
You trade one of those hand-crafted boats you build? How about (another) pic of that?
Beautiful car, btw. I'd trade one of my 'hand-crafted' kayaks for a car - but suspect I'd only get an old Datsun B-210.....
There's a lot of things they didn't tell me when I signed on with this outfit....
Nice and clean. How many miles-looks very well cared for. I rode in a Antique Rolls once. How is the ride and handling? Jealous..
Looks pretty fine Dale.
Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.
That doesn't look too F***ed up for a 1990 car. The dog raises hell with the back seat leather after he's been in the mud below the dock.
Nice car-enjoy it.
You will look mahvelous in it. Nice ride. I suspect there is a living to be made putting it into service transporting brides and grooms!
well. its about like riding in a bank vault- you hear absolutely nothing. Steering is quick and responsive, brakes are outstanding- two calipers to each wheel, and there is automatic leveling regardless of the attitude of the car. The comfort level is wonderful.
But can it tow a boat?
I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.
Love that! Now I know where Cadillac stole that from for the '92.Do you have the steering and suspension tighten when you go faster? I really like your car. The lines are timeless. I would add daylight Angle eyes and a spoiler tho. And some ground graphics. A sleeper. .. Let me know how 100 MPH feels like, if you ever go there. Edit. OMG! it has a saloon. THAT's what the trays are for! Check for a hidden bar. Beverly Hills Car Club :: 1990 Bentley Mulsanne Saloon -automatic leveling regardless of the attitude of the car.

Dale, the timber finish is an early 2 pack system and looks like **** when it accumulates microscratches and u/v degration over time that gives it a "milky" finish. I've restored a few and use a single pot system. A fine car and worth every cent! BTW I believe they were still using the early Citroen oleo pneumatic ride control but check the plate under the hood. FWIW Citroen spares are much cheaper for the same result.

Congratulations Dale!!!!! Absolutely stunning.
There aren't many people that deserve such a fine machine... I'm pleased that one of us now has one!
Do enjoy every moment of the english version of fingerpoken und mittengrabben.
Nice ride. If I ever fly into Nashville, can you pick me up from the airport?
Did a little google-research and it appears that your car is the highly desirable non-turbo..........
We don't know how lucky we are....
^And with the highly desirable Chrysler V8 with "seasoned" cast parts as per Studebaker practice.
I'm sure Bentley has it well in hand.
well the Bentley does have an issue- master cylinder leaks. Trying to find a mechanic in Murfreesboro who works on a Bentley, is pretty daunting. Any ideas?
Drop in here and talk to these guys.
Someone will direct to a good mechanic/repairman.
Master cylinders are pretty generic. You need someone who won't damage the car.
The Rolls Royce / Bentley self levelling suspension of that period was licenced from Citroen and is none the worse for that.
Before I realised my stupidity I owned an English car. On one of my many trips to the repair garage, I noticed that my mechanic was working on a Rolls...He said that the parts were horrifyingly expensive. He gave as an example, a brake line for $500.
I do have a connection with a guy who is a Rolls collector. He might be able to suggest a repair shop in your area. PM if you like.
"Git 'er done"
Thanks for the pictures, I was hoping you would post some.
There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.
I believe that Charles Windsor recommends a tompion...
