Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

The Rover Sports Reg­is­ter’s Paul Wil­liams has owned three Rover 600s – and he says he bought the first one by ac­ci­dent. ‘I needed some ev­ery­day trans­port in a hurry as my car needed re­pairs,’ says Paul. ‘A 30,000-mile ex­am­ple came up lo­cally for £200 and I bought it. That car wasn’t espe­cially re­li­able but I re­placed it with an­other that I drove through Europe on a fam­ily hol­i­day and it was the per­fect com­pan­ion. In 2015 I bought a 620 GSi with just 3000 miles on the clock for £1400 – an ab­so­lute bar­gain, in my opin­ion. That car has now done 14,000 miles. It was my ev­ery­day trans­port for a while but now it gets used more spar­ingly. With fold­ing rear seats the prac­ti­cal­ity is good and so is parts avail­abil­ity as so many of th­ese cars are still be­ing scrapped. But you don’t have to source spares ex­clu­sively from break­ers. Thanks to the Honda link there are lots of new parts avail­able too, in ei­ther Honda or Rover pack­ag­ing.’
