    So I sort of hijacked the roffle for this last week and paid £100 to the winner @twosmoke300, thank you kindly for allowing me to have this and collected from @83C last Thursday night. I have only driven it a total of 30 miles but I am about to complete a 600 or so mile round trip this weekend once I drop the Audi A3 off to its new owner tomorrow. 
    I know quite a fair bit about VW group cars and specifically the utter dependability of the 1.9 TDI units. However I am now entering a world of complete unknowing with the Rover. From what I have driven of it seems a good steer and is quite a good hoon. I do drive a fair amount of distance each year, close to 20k so I wonder how the Rover will cope with long journeys and regular high mileage.
    My aim is to enjoy this is for what it is, a £100 car with 9 and a half months mot and document my experience and allow it go for cheap when I come to sell it.  When one of the previous cars I have had on here comes up for sale either the A3 or the passat estate this will be sold (providing I can buy them back). If that does not happen I may just keep this and see how it goes.
     
    This is about as basic, cheap and no frills as motoring gets and it will be used as a work horse. When I do sell it I will probably sell it for under £100 so keep your eyes peeled for a bargain later on in the year.

    Garages are open all over the place, most of these waiting till October are just your usual dodge pots thinking they can get away with a set of bald tyres and blowing exhaust.

    I'm thinking much the same myself. The government havent really been clear on when this will end. I am away to look at a cheap little polo today which has mot due at the end of next month, if it gets the extension that would be perfect.

    Not much to report in rover land, however a replacement may be getting picked up for this soon if all goes well.  I have picked up some work to tide me over so it means I can look to adding another addition to the fleet. I'm thinking on switching the rover to a back up car when I eventually purchase something else. I'm growing quite fond of it. 
    Hyundai coupe is the next car im looking at, however unfucked examples under £500 are as rare as rocking horse shit.

    My Grandad had a 1.4 Rover 45, until sadly he had to give up driving last year. So I was tasked with selling it.
    I really enjoyed giving it some TLC and buzzing around in it till it sold. As you say they handle nicely ( even on miss matched tyres )  and the K series has plenty of poke.
     
    If I had the room, I would have happily brought it for myself. 
    Likewise hope you can get something sorted on the job front.  I'm job hunting myself at the minute. Just trying to weigh up my options. Either Warehouse work or go back to Van driving.

I cant remember for love nor money what it is, small cherry red A reg saloon potentially, near betley in staffordshire.

    The 600 mile round trip didnt happen this weekend, due to me being too hungover this weekend. 240 ish miles driven today without a problem. Still trying to get used to not having a 6th gear. Can't complain its as comfy as. I need to draw myself away from the temptation of buying cars and stick with one for a little while!
