Rover and out and hi, ho sil­ver!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

I am pleased to see that Nick Larkin, who clearly loves BMC/BL/MG/Rover prod­ucts, has bought the MG ZR that fea­tured in the £500 Chal­lenge series ( CCW, 18 Oc­to­ber ).

I am also pleased that CCW cham­pi­ons the de­lights of the MG ZR/Rover 25, as they are very good cars and be­com­ing rarer on our roads. I have al­ways liked th­ese Rovers and used to have a Rover 25 1.6i XL be­tween 2002 and 2008.

I have re­cently been watch­ing episodes of The Bill and couldn’t help spot­ting a num­ber of in­ter­est­ing clas­sics such as an early ‘70s Ford Mus­tang, Ford Cortina MkIV and V, and Austin Metro. There are also a large num­ber of Lu­ton-reg­is­tered Vaux­hall Cav­a­lier MkIIs used as un­marked cars.

This prod­uct place­ment clearly works, be­cause I now want a sil­ver 1987 Cav­a­lier 1.8i GL hatch­back au­to­matic! J Ken­dall, Wake­field, West York­shire
