The Holy Grail????

Post by Nuts4my827 » Thu Apr 06, 2017 6:20 am

Well. I have been offered in the future the Mk2 Stirling I rebuilt thew engine on when the owner dies, or in 10 years time. And i continue to get to service and work on the car.

However.


I know of the whereabbouts of a Mk1 Vitesse, in Nightfire, with headlight washers, large trip computer, and High armrest centre console.
This car is in pretty good condition, and he is a Rover nut, or was. Also has quitre a few spares, AND the Rover Checkbook.

Do I????


I currently have a 2.0 Turbo Coupe, and the 2.7 Manual Coupe is very nearly ready to back on teh road.

That would make 4 potentially.

It would depend if it was manual for me?

Plus what you think you'll do with it once you have it?

Think its an auto, cant remember. I do like the 2.7 auto, and have a manual already :0

I'll drive it. And love it, and cuddle it, and polish it, and squeeze it. And look at it.

Silly question to ask a forum full of incurable Rover-nuts, surely?

If you're going to love it and can keep it well then get it - no brainer

What reg is it? Mk1b or c out of interest? Guessing with large trip computer its a B without full leather and aircon? You can probably guess from these questions what my holy grail is... 8)
