So, what is the back story with this car?
I remember seeing photos in my younger sister's fanzines from the 1960s and 70's with British pop musicians riding around in Rollers painted in the Pop Art style of the time.
I thought that this was some kind of one fingered wave to the Roller driving square John's making up the etablishment. Being British, it was probably a two fingered gesteculation now I come to think of it.
Keith Moon, drumming his way into stardom with The Who, drove his Rolls into the swimming pool at some stately home in England making a change from trashing his drums on stage and hotel suites on tour. The stately home was probably his stately home, where the rolling symbol of consevitism sat under water for some time after Keith's early death a short time latter. A memorial of sorts to the guy, I guess.
