Just thought I would say a quick hello. I became the owner of a 3l Mk III Auto Saloon last friday.
My other car is a PRB Clubman (a Caterham for you blokes over there.
I am infatuated with the Rover now. I never gave it a second thought normally favouring the XJ6 but driving that has the personality of a bowl of porridge.
I hate porridge.
Anyway my girl is very smooth and so different that every time I am at the lights I have to give it a gentle rev just to see that the engine is still going. Its so quiet!
I bought it initially just to use to park at the station as the clubman is out of the question and its too far to ride my pushy. But now it is getting the royal treatment. I have already started blocking her back ready to spray this weekend in the garage. I will leave it the same colour and perhaps put a two tone on it for style as it is white now.
If anybody is interested in the pics of the spray, let me know and I will post them up.
" welcome my friend,to the show that never ends". That's it mate your hooked now ;D It always starts with minor classics , a mini here, an VW Beetle there, and you tell yourself you can quit when ever you want to, but mark my words once you try the hard stuff with the Viking brand.. you never go back!!! ;D Please post some pics and keep on enjoying.

Hi Damian welcome to Forum the home for Rover "nutters" Glenn is the chairman of the "nutters" club and Warwick is the overseas rep ;D membership of 3 inc myself anymore members I could name a few ONLY JOKING "Poo Bahh Humbug" Christmas is coming
A very nice example of a MK111 Saloon Damian. Carpet sets can be purchased over here in the UK fromJR Wadhams. Not sure whether they are available over in Oz. I'm sure fellow countrymen will answer that for you.
Hey Damian, I am just across the Tasman and have found www.scottsoldautorubber.com.au/ to be an excellent source of P5 bits and pieces. A tenner will get you an oil filter for example and postage over here is much cheaper than a UK site, will be peanuts over there. Enjoy your ride. cheers tom
