Back in the fold!

Back in the fold!

Postby Rubythursday » Wed Jan 23, 2019 9:53 am

Having being without a Rover product for a number of years I have now acquired 3 in the last 12 months!

First one to arrive is a 1988 Range Rover 3.5 Auto

Second one a 1948 75

and a couple of weeks ago a 1999 75 2litre connoisseur auto

Oh dear it catching again!

Old habits die hard Tony...

Did you ever get the Hornsby engine running?

You like your autos Tony, so do I ever since the series 1 P6 with the Borg Warner Auto

strange that whenever I mention auto at work everybody piles in with unfriendly comments and sarcastic innuendo :lol: you have to drive a manual or "its not a proper car" :ugeek: type thing

so do all 3 qualify as tax exempt? (it does help a bit) oh I think the Range Rover is too new, just realised, great to be able to park up 3 motors like that, you need the space to do I can't even stockpile 2, just have 1

can you give us a couple of lines on each of the 3 Tony? updates or description ;)

I always buy Auto out of preference. P3 with freewheel is a half way house!
Might have sold the Range Rover, run out of space!
The 1999 75 is lovely to drive, I enjoy using it and I am considering ditching the modern Volvo and running it as an everyday car.
P3 will be coming home next month, watch this space as restoration begins.
