I'm sure you've ALL been following my so far not very successful efforts at shifting my Rover 820 (aka great green beastie, paddock of lushness... you get the idea - it's green). It has many many good points, some bad and some incontinence too. However this manb has it correct.

Here we are, ready to roffle this fine british piece of motor. It's a great cruiser that just munches away long distances, is cheap to run, has had all the important servicing bits done in the last year, is not rusty (BIG BRUCY BONUS) is big and most importantly fecking GREEN!

It is this big.

It looks like this:

As a theme tune to the wonderful greenness, performed by many successful* singers. I want you all to sing along now in your own unique ways:

"I'm gonna take this Rover and make it evergreen"

Except you don't need to cos it already be quite green. I'm sure it could be greener but...

Right, back on track - this fine machine could be yours for a mere £18 per ticket. I live in the arse end of the UK (somerset) so appreciate it'll be fecking miles from some, but depending on where the lucky* winner is at, something can be sorted i'm sure.

A suggestion for the correct attire when collecting, and maybe a bit of coreography for the winning* dance:

(btw that is totally NOT me, I can dance way better*)

Or maybe the lucky* winners facial expression on discovering what they have won:

Get them ticketz bought shiters!

OMG I R DISAPOINT! I forgot all about the nugget of purest green! Could have made that the theme instead... Good old blackadder, i'm quite cheerful that it's on Netflix now :D

 

mercrocker and yes oui si -  well done chaps, thank you

 

Keep 'em coming. I may* be devising competitions and secret extra prizes... Or I may not. 

 

BTW i'm at work till half 7 so will only be able to get on here now and then - working in a lab it is strictly no phones.

Roffles can be a struggle with cars valued at actual money I'm afraid. I'd be more inclined to try Car And Classic or an eBay Classified Ad I think. It's a remarkable car.

Agree with that. We tend to be lower end of the market.

Certainly ticks the unusual box but anything north of £10 tends to be a challenge

Thanks for the support peeps, I did wonder if the roffle would leave the ground or not. Looks like a not do we think? I've been putting off gumtree/ebay etc cos of messrs but here we go, i'll get it on them places.

 

Can a mod remove the thread, or do we just leave it to die a slow death in the pages of AS history?

 

Huge thanks to yes oui si, mercrocker, Andy F and tommytwo for requesting tickets!

Keep the thread, but just change it to a For Sale one.

 

Something this awful green should needs to remain on these here beige pages.

 

Shame it's a manual, otherwise we would have peer-pressured Junkman into buying it!

Hi all, been absent/busy/abducted by aliens (delete as appropriate) for the last little while.

 

There has been developments! An offer has been offered, negotiations have been negotiated and now we just need to figure out how to get the green wotsit from deepest darkest Somerset up to east Yorkshire! Current theory is a relay, passing the rather large green baton about halfway.

 

More updates to come. Oh and the numberplates have both fallen off in objection to all this lovely sunshine and heat we're having just now, the sticky shit is now just shit.

Getting the Green Machine ready for the road and a paint job. I have found that the knocking is a failed front engine mount (EDP7368) but I can't source one. Rover 800 forum still haven't let me register so I can't get help there. Does anyone know of an alternative or source for the front engine mount (manual version)?
