Have a gold early rover 25 if needed, I’m in Coventry so can be a relief car should you have anyone drop out
That is always very useful to have!

Thank you for the offer :clapping

Three cars definitely lined up, my committee colleagues are sorting out the fourth at the moment and I am negotiating for the fifth one, which, if we can have it, will definitely be a crowd puller :)

Thanks for the recent offers made on here; we have some more events coming up soon and I am sure we can use your support at some of those.

I have a late Charcoal Metallic [or grey] 1.6SLi that is VGC. Small rust bubble on one rear wheel arch, a couple of small pin dents on a wing.
Its standard at the moment sitting on 14" steel wheels with the very fetching 'alloy' looking hub caps. The original second owner thought they were alloy's bless him! and I believed him too until I got it home :laughing2

It's all a bit too much grey on grey for my taste really, but needs must remain at the moment, I may freshen it up with a GTi interior and possibly some professional paint/lacquer correction when funds allow.

Anyone able to donate, or lend us, a D16 SOHC cam cover please? We need one to put on a car we're 'improving' and is needed soon so it can be repainted in time.

If needed, we can return one removed at the show.

It's so we can go from this...
