Unfortunately I am working that weekend doing a disaster recovery test. I don’t work many weekends so it’s Sod’s law that it clashes with this event :glare

Re: Gear sloppyness

Apparently a wobbly shaft :blink is common on the T series. Mine is the same but I’ve just got used to it. I still prefer driving my Rover than my everyday car.

J944EWP caught my eye as I wandered around - 420GSi with fog lights to boot, along with the leather interior - is that a club member's ?

Could be a GSi “Executive” with those wheels. Very rare car!

Re: Vinny's Rover 220 GSi Turbo Diary of sorts 2010 - Today
