New member in Wilts

#1 Post by T16-Tomcat » Sat Dec 07, 2019 8:44 pm

Hi all, just joined up.

Have been a rover owner/nut for many years, and recently got back in the fold having acquired what I think is the best 623 in the country, and today I picked up a 1994 220 turbo coupe with just 46k on the clock. It's very tidy, but not showroom.

I thought I'd join up, as I know a fair bit about these cars (having been involved at the factories when they were made) and will no doubt need parts and advice on where to source them!

I'm based in Swindon, anyone else local to me?

Both cars sound great. I love 600s too. We do have at least one member in and around Swindon (Hammond, aka Steve).
