Yes, it's true that Palm Springs is the Desert Paradise of the Wealthy and a wonderful place to drive classic cars on its wide, uncrowded streets, but unfortunately that is no guarantee that each and every car will have a rich and fulfilling life. Sometimes unfortunate fates befall innocent automobiles.

Like our case in point. Forgotten and forlorn behind a resort called the Stardust, its life has of late contained more dust than stars. Peeling clearcoat, ravaged Everflex roof, flat tires and missing wheel treatment- on a 1976 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow. No, Patina Firemist is not an original color. How the mighty have fallen.

Are you listening, Lynda Carter?
