Driving a '69 Rolls Royce Shadow to the Arctic in the middle of winter

Harry's garage

преди 2 години

After fettling my Ebay £4100 Rolls Royce, I thought it deserved a mega trip so back in February '18, we drove it 2000miles from the UK to the Arctic Circle in Norway. Here's what happened..

Amazing, what a journey. What a car. I have been to Sweden, Norway and Denmark are both on my bucket list and always wanted a Rolls. The Silver shadow is the best Rolls. The Shadow two having slightly better abilities but doesn't look as nice as your Silver Shadow. Much nicer than the Spirit/Spur and same platform. The Silver Shadow being the first Rolls with a monocoque body. All in all probably the best Rolls ever made!

I have lost count on how many times I have watched this video I just never get tired of it. I Love Harry and his commentary and I hope to follow in his footsteps one day in my 1958 Jaguar Mk VIII to the artic circle

Watching those two videos, we all are like: Yeah..Let's find one and do the same. But I believe this is a really bad idea. haha; You really have to be sure of yourself and of your car to drive a road full of snow and strong wind. I would not trust my XK8. Know that the back would flip to the front very quickly.

take a tip from someone that's lived in snowy climates all his life - Don't fill the tires back up. Less pressure on snow and ice allows for more traction.

Let's face it, if you are going to drive to the Arctic Circle (or Moscow!), the Rolls is the way to go on a long, long drive.

The things here is: You watch this video and you are like: Yes let's go and buy an old Rolls Royce or an old Bentley. But the reality is that the only reliable Rolls Royce is in Harry's garage. Too bad folks :-)

My favourite Harry's garage video and i'm a long time subscriber. Harry is turning out to be a hero of mine, yes a gentleman farmer who used his hard work and desire to create a magazine about his passion for cars. His hard work on his farm allows him to indulge in cars and unlike a lot of people after working hard for 1 week or X amount of months he doesn't go to the pub or a wee holiday, he goes on adventures of a lifetime. He LIVES!!!, an example to us all. His Monaco trip in the Jag XJS V12 has inspired me to buy a 2nd hand GT car as my next car for my 50th Birthday and i, my wife and some friends are going to convoy from Glasgow all the way to Monaco and nice stopping on the way here and there. I'm not brave enough to do it in Jag XJS from the 80's i'll Likely buy an XK, a Merc CL or a BMW 6 series as it'll need to be used as almost everyday transport as well. As Harry said "hang the cost!!"" In 15 years you won't be allowed to drive a car like this anyway!!

Loving it! Never even thought about the tyre pressure, I learned something new today. Damn, that car just loves petrol? I have driven many different cars (and vans) but my 'all-time' favourite was a 4.2 Jaguar XJ6, it too loved petrol but I reckoned about 25 mpg in town and 35 on a long run, hardly a car to run on a tight budget but 'oh my god' just so beautiful to drive. The double wishbone suspension in the back? That car would 'shake it's tail' if you pushed it a bit, I generally drive with a light foot but that car would smoothly transition... I loved it. I have the 'family' Mazda 323 LX that has to go, 126k miles on the clock, beautiful engine, well maintained, some cosmetic damage like a scrape on front offside bumper and the rear too, nothing that would impede the car from functioning brilliantly. (side-note, needs a new battery but you can't blame the car for that)...my point? You seem to enjoy cars and even have the money to 'have fun', I have a car that has to go because of it's failing bodywork but I have an emotional attachment and would hate to see this fantastic motor crushed, there's even two almost new tyres on the front, a great car and an engine that never let us down. I want it to go to a good home, I'll sell it for scrap value just to ensure it isn't scrapped (think about it, no profit there) but I appeal to the car-lover in you, don't let this lovely car die! 24 years old with only 126k, as a matter of fact, accepting your word as a gentleman, free if you tell me it will go to a 'good home', well, I'll have to charge you one euro to make it official. I reside (as does the car) in southern Ireland, NCT is gone, so it must be collected. There has got to be people 'crying out' for parts, my single objective is to move this car on to somebody who will appreciate the great engine and not crush the car. Pax dude.

Tip : Do not take the route via the Ruhrgebiet in Germany, there is always much traffic and roadwork there. Take the northern route in The Netherlands A1 A37 into Germany and then Hamburg. To avoid Hamburg with it’s horrible traffic take the ferry at Gluckstadt over the Elbe 👍

going into Norway without a speedometer is strongly unadvisable: there are many many speed cameras and fines are high.

The speedo was fine for most of the trip but then backed up for a day or so. Still had the speed readout on the sat-nav though. I was more bothered I wasn't recording the actual miles covered and milage between fill-ups than what speed I was doing.

Just come across this ..fantastic ! Anyone ,like me ,who isn't hands-on would have been(and has been) absolutely shafted by the RR 'specialists' to get the car no where near as good as you obviously have. I'm sure the 'specialists' costs and very patchy quality ,and often knowledge, massively depresses the value of Rolls Royces as classics by frightening sensible people off !
