NEC Motor Show 1991

Postby DavesZed » Sun Jan 24, 2010 11:06 am

Well I think it was 1991 (could of been 92, but I suspect these were the launch versions - I'm sure someone can correct me if I'm wrong)

Anyway I took my camera with me and managed to take these three rovers.

1st the Rover 200 Coupe...

Image

Then the Rover 200 Convertible (hanging!)...

Image
Number plate reads 'LIBERTY', not sure why.

And lastly, the New Rover 800 Coupe Sterling (alas I couldn't get back far enough to get it all in, due to the crowds round it!)

Image

Hope you like them, only just remembered that I still had them.

The Coupe was manual, very rare.

Would have been interesting to know what happened to that?

Nice pictures and thanks for sharing them with us. I remember seeing the cars on display now i see your pictures but couldnt have recaaled what was on display without them.
The Rover converible i had forgotten all about that until you mentioned it.
It was a limited edition model . I may even have a brouchure in my collection. I cant recall ever seeing any others on the road.That said in the North they were not likely to sell many.
It was called the liberty after the famous Liberty shop in London and if memory serves me right the seat featrued peacockls in their design.
I quite liked it and its special colour. It was different.
Wonder if any still exist?

The motor show at the NEC would have been 1992. It started there in 1978 and was held every 2 years.

I've got some more of other stuff taken at the same show, Ferraris, TVR's, McLaren F1, Jag XJ220 etc, plus some speciality stuff.

There's not many, as I remember I wasn't feeling very well that day at all. If they would be of interest to anyone I'll gladly scan them all and post them up.

The "unknown" is an AC - an "Ace", I think.

Wow! That Limo really brought back some memories!!!! I was at the NEC motor show with my Dad back in 1991. I would have been about 6 or 7 at the time. I remember getting into the back of a new mk2 Gold Sterling 4-door, and I remember being a bit dissapointed that it didnt have rear electric seats. But it was very nice and ambient with those light-coloured leather seats.

Thanks for sharing.
