Euro im­ports

Classics Monthly - - Classic Kit - Peter Church Lough­bor­ough

Iwas fas­ci­nated by the Mini pro­ject in­tro­duced last month and es­pe­cially the idea of sourc­ing a non-rusty ex­am­ple from Italy. Did you know Italy was one of the big­gest ex­port mar­kets for Rover dur­ing the ’90s? On a re­cent trip to Naples I even saw a cou­ple of Rover Met­ros and quite a few 214s seem­ingly in daily use – but not a sin­gle Al­fa­sud!

There must be some rich pickings for the BL/Rover en­thu­si­asts and even for those cars which aren’t as easy as the Mini to swap back to RHD, it’s still a lot eas­ier than im­port­ing from the USA etc. We’ve still got a chance be­fore the Brexit cur­tain falls!
