Fresh off the production line by the looks of it

There are a handful of cool Rovers. This isnt one of them. Not even nearly

CRV/Jaaag

My dad had one of these in a sort of chewed chewing gum colour. It gave me my first taste of lift off oversteer when getting on the M62 a bit hot at Milnrow. I massively shat myself and continue to hate oversteer in FWD cars.

Seriously uncool.

The train :(

Erm.

SIF puts these crap cars up as he actually likes them and this is his way of indulging himself. On this occasion, he appears to have gone for the Pre Honda version.


Good man.

I had one of these (a 216) as a company car (I think it was an 'E' reg). Collected from the office on a Friday, then broke down the following Monday; first day in the job and on my way to an important meeting. Had to get a taxi and arrange for the car to be recovered!

I remember it being fairly reliable from then on but the sunroof leaked at the slightest hint of rain. It was quite well spec'd, quite confortable and was reasonably quick but was never 'cool'

Had it for 3 years before changing for a MK2 Rover 216 which was actually quite a nice car

Eastbourne express.

Seriously uncool, although my Grandad had one or a while and it wasn't a bad car really I suppose apart from the rust.
