I want Frank Zappa's Rolls Royce. It's up for auction on Ebay Motors.
This statement of proper British elegance was the daily driver for iconoclastic composer/guitarist and Mothers of Invention founder Frank Zappa. Shortly before purchasing the automobile, Mr. Zappa let his driver's license lapse and never made the time to renew it. However, he thoroughly enjoyed the comfort of this Rolls and as a result, he was driven by a chauffer. Purchased new, it served as a vehicular counterpoint to its owner's avant garde learning. Also up for sale: Dweezil's Aston Martin

BTW...

The personalized license plate RDNZL is an abbreviation of the title of one of Zappa's compositions "Redunzel".

Pink Bits? Is that next to the Burbank? (Pardon obscure Baby Snakes video reference).

Wow. Seeing how my car crapped out this morning, I can only see this as a sign from Providence. I now must buy Frank's Rolls.
