Ah, the only thing I can imagine looking at those pictures is the back doors falling off.

And a great racer too.

Possibly the last proper Rover.

1994? Didn't they stop making it in 1986?

Definately the last proper Rover. My first car was one (Series two, V8 EFI).. I loved it, when it was working. We'd had it for about 6 years before I got a hold of it, but unfortuately it was lent to a family.. aquaintance.. who neglected it badly. Before then it was remarkably bulletproof.

Got that picture from the Rover press access two years ago (have to check if the site is still "alive" )

According to the licence plate it is indeed from 1986. Never trust a press site for accurate info....
