The Ridiculousness of This Rolls Royce Is Well, Ridiculous

Forced Induction Friday #FIF

While cruising through some youtube videos I stumbled upon a title that said “Blown Rolls Royce-74”. OK, you have my attention.

What I saw next was a cross between Mad Max and Driving Miss Daisy. All and all it kind of suited the Rolls Royce. It was gaudy, yet refined. Over the top and with a horsepower rating of sufficient. I mean, just look at the elegant cage work inside. Not to mention the wine and glasses holder in the center.

I’m curious what has happened to this vehicle. Owner Petri Plosila’s “Pro Classic” Rolls- Royce Silver Shadow is about all I could find.  Doing a quick search only showed a couple videos. I hope it’s still alive. Anyone that may know, sound off in the comments below.

Anyway, enjoy the video!

I've been addicted to power and speed ever since the first time my head got pushed back into the seat under acceleration. I grew up with an affinity for engines and the arts, blending them together into my passions. Photography, writing and motorsports.

I've traveled the country in pursuit of my passions and paid the price with my health. I'm a living marvel of modern medicine and a beacon of the human spirit.

I was down and out for sometime but now, I'm back! With new hips, a slightly shorter digestive track and a drive to further my own ability.

I'm from Maine. I have a small farm with 57 acres in the foothills of the White Mountains. I have a beautiful wife with a little girl, 2 dogs, one cat, ten chickens, and garage space to build something terrifyingly awesome.

So ya, I'm living my American Dream.

I don't particularly care for long walks on the beach
Sunsets are cool but I prefer the smell of race fuel.
One of my favorites songs is the sound of a Audi five cylinder at 9000 RPMs under wide open throttle, spitting hellfire and brimstone between gears. That always puts a smile on my face.
