I bought my (soon to be at the time) wife a Rover 418... when I say "bought" I mean I hauled it out of my mate “over the road’s” scrap yard...we were both completely broke following divorces....
... however it only needed a drive shaft and a bloody good clean and she was mobile again.... She had it for a couple of years and then we passed it down to my little sister when we had enough money to "up grade" it ended its days with about 250,000 on the clock and was as reliable ..and exciting..as Terry Wogan..…..
…mind you… it did have the Peugeot engine…..
