Although good to drive you always know you are in an oldish car, it is suprisingly agile for such a big car with very light steering and good turning circle. The purchase of parts are good and what you cant buy new are generally available second hand. General servicing is not a major problem, but more complicated jobs can become a nightmare. If looked after it will remain reliable for years, although the day will come when big bucks are needed for a complete overhaul and refurbishment. A good classic Royce if you can get one in good condition to start with.
