  • Hello all! New from Manchester (C418YRW) aka the chocolate lime

    Hello folks, finally joined after years of lurking. ĎRe-unitedí with a car I saw online years ago and wanted. My neighbours dad had a company Montego 1.3 as a child, my grandmother a B reg 2.0 HL and our local church organist/music teacher/retired solicitor had a B reg 2.0 HLS also Opaline green. Sadly both the the latter two went off the road mid to late 90s.

    Really happy with with my new purchase and itís fascinating history.

    Wow, that's in good condition! I'm assuming that the alloys are a later addition? Is that also a Rover 100 lurking behind?

        Yes, my Rover 114SLi, hopefully but regretfully going to a new owner tomorrow. Iíve had it for sale a while, but someone who seems very genuine is coming tomorrow. I hate to see it unused. Itís only done 41,000 gen miles. it also had one owner for 21 years.

        The Montego alloys are 14inch MG model wheels.

            Nice purchase, Gavin. Hope to see it pottering about Manchester sometime!

            The alloys by the way are 15" x 6J used on the MG 2.0i and (later) Turbo.
