Yep, sorry, I meant are you selling the Metro. Obvs not though.

Looking forward to the next exciting installment!

I forget the Metro is a Rover too! 

It was a running joke:

'Which car are we taking?'

'The red one'

'Which red one?' '

The Rover'

'fucksake'

[mention=21966]Daviemck2006[/mention] has the Rover 218D now. 
Still have the Metro, but need a daily really, so as to keep the miles of it
 
And the rover has just completed a couple of very busy nights delivering the takeaways. Obviously as the speedo doesn't work no idea how many miles covered, but used 3/4 tank of fuel. Handled itself well.

Oh god if I ordered pizza/kebab/chips/a good curry and it came in this it would be the icing on the, erm, kebab...!?

Edit: perhaps it would be the garlic mayonnaise on the takeaway.

Do takeaways even deliver to the middle of nowhere where you live?

Ace, right up your street I reckon, I'm pleased it's still in the fold.

More pics and driving impressions please!

It's... Interesting. 

The engine is revvy and willing, although it hunts a bit at idle. 

Bit of an oil leak down the front, hopefully only rocker cover gasket. 

Thermostat a bit iffy, meaning heating is poor. Easy enough to sort. 

Suspension clatters a lot at the back, needs bushes and/or shock looking at. 

Occasionally get a clicking from something somewhere, perhaps central locking or something. It wouldn't be and Italian car without a bit of electrical shenanigans now would it? 

Steering pulls a bit to one side and has a slight wobble, which improved when I put some air in the tyres. No power steering, again, improved with putting air in tyres. 

Interior was a bit mingy, but then I have high standards tbf. Now all disinfected and cleaner. 

Parcel shelf broken, seats a bit ripped and dirty, but I'll throw some seat covers in. Steering wheel scruffy and chipped, cover ordered. 

Interior plastics such as arm rests / handles are pitted and ruined might get some material to cover them. 

All in all, plenty to keep me busy, but nothing insurmountable.

Yeah, the owner before Colc used it hard but looked after it mechanically I think. Am I right in thinking it's a 60?

Yeah, 60SX. It appears it has been used as a Marshalls car and possibly a trials car too. It has loads of 'character'
