  1. I think the Chrysler name didn't help I vaguely remember reading that they were originally going to be Humber-badged (in the UK anyway).
  2. Not often you stumble across one of these
  3. Having recently achieved another year’s MOT (not without event), thought today was a nice day to treat the 75 to some Lanoguard on its underside. Still looking pretty decent under there.
  4. Not quite as twattish behaviour to destroy one in 1995, or whenever that was. Only a complete philistine would do it now.
  5. To be fair, they were keeping their MGR expertise fairly quiet in recent years. They changed the name of the place and started promoting themselves as BINI specialists, which they seemed to do a good trade in. But the guys there still knew a Rover 75 like the back of their hand.
  6. Just found out that my local Rover specialist has been forced to close due to redevelopment plans. Been taking my cars here for as long as I’ve been able to drive, and it’s the only place I’ve really felt able to trust for the more complex jobs and that in-depth MGR knowledge when you need it. Particularly rubbish for the guys who were running the place, as it was basically an employee buy-out when the owner retired, and they only took over a couple of years ago. Hope they manage to land on their feet and find something else quickly.
  7. Even still had the original dealer sticker in the back window - looks to have been bought new in Hatfield, Herts (not far from where I spotted it).
  8. Not every day you spot a 125P in the Homebase car park! Reckon there must be single figures of these left in the UK now. Minty as well. Yes, I did get so excited that I put my finger over the lens...
  9. Yeah remember watching this at the time and then again a few years later. Great documentary - but the optimistic note it ends on brings a bit of a tear to the eye now, knowing the outcome.
  10. Didn’t think the naff white dials came in until the facelift. Nice though. Can certainly confirm that sagging door cards (and sagging everything else) is indeed “normal in Rover of this age”
  11. Tempted to buy it just so I can pretend to be a bad guy from The Professionals…

    Absolute legend - here’s an article about him. https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/magazine/the-work-of-terry-davey/ One of my favourite items on the bookshelf is this tome which has more than 100 of his drawings in it.

  14. New article on ChinaOnline about the last gen 9-5. Keen to get my hands on one of these one day. https://www.aronline.co.uk/opinion/saab-9-5/?fbclid=IwAR1nDSJ9CAV6jjL5qFgzoQdIzaa9NqABFHz3bUiHm618nTVOuuvXYhABVPo
