trigger Posted February 11 Author Share Posted February 11 So after all that drama i was put right off using a old car as a daily anymore and my mum was selling her mint condition low mileage Fiesta 1.4TDi Zetec so i bought that of her instead. Brilliant little cars, and mega cheap to run. in 2016 I was at a local custom and hot rod show and saw this 1971 Rover 2000 (with a 2.2 engine fitted) for sale for £2500 so decided it was time to scratch that P6 itch. I really enjoyed this car, it drove far newer than it was, handled well even if it did have comedical body roll, pulled well, it had a stainless exhaust so sounded nice and was comfortable Sadly i found that it was a bit of a ringer, the main body started life as a completely different car and HRT3J's panels and ID was swapped over, quite common on P6's apparently but i didn't like it so i sold it back on again to someone who removed the plate and rang me to say it done 90 mph all the way up to Stoke on Trent... around the same time i got offered this Rover 620Ti for £400 which had been off the road a few years as a project to do. Again i chucked some money and time at it and it turned out well, it was a bloody quick car, I'm amazed these haven't got more of a following as it's a proper Q car and great fun. That ended up selling on here to JohnF. Whilst I was having a Rover phase i bought this 2600 SE from a local garage for £3000 Now this was a nice car, i had a few rust repairs to do, cambelt change and few other little jobs but the best thing i fitted was a stainless rear box from Rimmers, the sound from that 6 cylinder was beautiful!
