Default Rover SDI

Saw one on the road yesterday, the sight, sound and smell of it took me back 30 years, what a classic!

Obviously I meant SD1!

Wow, I had such a soft spot for these when I was a kid. I remember spending hours drawing a police car version!

I had a ride in one in the '80s as a kid. The thing broke down within a mile of setting off!!!!

Classic BL, talent and potential wasted.

I prefer the P6 3500's - real classic!

P5 and P6Bs are lurrrvvveeely. Our family car in the late 90s after I passed my test was a P6 SC. I longed for the TC and ached for the B!!!
