Default You'll never see a Rolls Royce with its hood raised

Rolls Royce always said "You will never see a Rolls Royce with its hood raised." Simply because a Rolls Royce never breaks down. Its simply refuses to start.

Heres what I found one Sunday morning. A Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. And that too without a hood. What a pity!!! Also I guess the owner didnt feel that his car looked like a Rolls. So he had 2 more RR stickers [those cheap radium ones] on the boot of the car. So now the car shouts out that IT IS a Rolls Royce. Interior was intact.

It's just a polite way of saying it breaks down.

"Rolls Royces never break down, they sometimes fail to proceed?

If he does anything as stupid as that then he does not deserve to own a Rolls Royce.

Oh those!! They had their roofs chopped off and converted into pickup trucks. And then used to collect garbage.
