N846ARP Dark Grey 820 Vit

Post by Charles827si » Tue Oct 18, 2016 10:17 pm

Just tonight I pictured this car walking literally 100 yards down the road on a street that heads toward my village centre. Quite surprised to see another 800 in my area and the first time for many years. I have no idea who it could belong to.

According to the MOT App on my mobile, the date first used was 25.04.1996, and MOT expires 21st Feb 2017. Very low mileage with 78850. Looked reasonable but not easy to say in the dark. There's a high vis jacket on the seat. If it's still there tomorrow I'll get another picture in the day time.

Not sure what Dusan, would be doing in West Yorkshire? If assuming it's his maybe visiting pals or relatives?

Went to have a gander this afternoon. The bloke called Paul who lives at the cottage owns it. He has a garage business in Halifax. As well as the Rover he owns an 80's Range Rover parked around the back of the cottage which he is rebuilding and a Mitsubishi Pickup which he tells me has a broken fuel pump and the Range Rover was used to recover it!
The 800 has had one lady owner before Paul from new and she at some point had four 800's in all. Paul tells me he plans to do the Range Rover up and go to shows in it with the 800 on the back of a trailer.

Nice you got to find the background on this car Charles! It looks vaguely familiar as one that was sold in Huntingdon about a year back but that was a greeny sort of colour.

Definitely not Dusans grey Vitesse, his is R*** NOJ or something very similar, it's also running on 16" Prestiges last time i saw it. Those wheels look like the 15" jobbies that seemed to be fitted to most of the lower spec cars from 96 onwards.
Cheers,
Dave

It looks in good order. Paintwork faded original. Wheels perhaps standard for the model.
