Blowd Up: 1975 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow

Do you remember the time when Queen Elizabeth II was at a Kiss Concert and she was called up onto the stage and she started shredding on the electric guitar? Oh wait..that didn't happen, but this next car did.  Find this 1975 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow here on eBay offered for $25,000 buy-it-now or make offer located in Damascus, MD.

From the seller:


The guys Install a blower motor to increase horsepower.  

Process: Removed engine. Used a mock-up block (exact duplicate of a Chevy small block) to make sure the new engine would line up correctly. Fabricated new motor mounts to support engine and transmission. Installed new $15K 650 horsepower engine and custom exhaust system to handle increased air flow generated by blower motor. Cut a "perfect" hole in the hood to allow room for the new motor. Left the remainder of the car "as is".

See a better way to drive like a madman?

    Daddy'll be happy until he sees the blown engine.

    Then he knows what's in store...
