Hello, new club member from France

#1 Post by scoubix » Tue Nov 12, 2019 11:00 pm

Hello gents (and ladies),

Just decided to apply for club membership, after meeting John at the NEC this past weekend. I was also an exhibitor there, with the Rover 800 Owners Club, and my 827 Coupé on their stand.
In real life, I'm the president of the French Rover Club, and just bought 10 days ago a '93 216 GSi. 1st car I bought when younger was a 218 SD Turbo.
In addition to the 216 and the 827, I also own a Rover 75 2.5 V6 Connoisseur (dealer launch model), and an '04 MG ZT-T 260 which is a former MGR-registered development car for the Rover 75 V8.
All cars are LHD..."on the right side", as I told John this weekend ;-)




'93 Rover 216 Gsi / '93 Rover 827 SC / '99 Rover 75 2.5 V6 / '04 MG ZT-T 260

:welcome and the club!

It was great to finally meet you after only having email conversations.

When we walked back to the East car park on Saturday evening, the long way round, we had chance to talk about several things and found as teenagers we had both advised our fathers on which new car to buy - in your case a British Rover 800 and mine a French Renault 14 :D
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Welcome to the club. I had a good look at your 827 at the NEC - a fine motor!
