The colour is Diamond White.
It's a poor quality picture taken with a rubbish digital camera, add the fact that it was getting dark too!

Fancy A "Frog-eye" Scorpio, Anyone?

I thought I'd share my troublesome, short-lived love affair with the Ford Scorpio, the last of Ford's big, rear wheel drive cars. The Frog-eye, introduced in 1994, received much criticism from the press for its ungainly looks, especially in saloon form, but I think the estates pictured here are actu...

Oops! :oops: Sorry Stephen, no offence was meant to owners of Montego's, but I think that's where this engine should have stayed; in a Montego. :) The 800 is a hefty car, and I just felt it was a bit sluggish if you wanted to get anywhere in a hurry. Once at cruising speed, it was great, but ask it ...

Nice cars, especially the Mk1, what happend to it? Lord Sterling The MK1 was mainly driven by my wife, as I also had my X300 Jaguar, and she found the Rover a bit too big for her when it came to parking it! (usual story with women!) So one of the big cars had to go, and I didn't want to part with m...

Welcome, Dan. I think we saw the Sterling on ebay and it garnered a lot of favourable comment (Carribean blue and cream leather - one of the best combinations). Yes, Richard, the car was on ebay, but I didn't bid on it or win it. :D The seller only lives 15 miles from me, and as he'd left a mobile ...

crickey you got through them quick. some really tidy looking cars there Yes Richard, they were all short lived I'm afraid. The first one got written off by some prat reversing into it outside my house; I'd only had it six months. The second one decided to break it's gearbox after only six weeks of ...

Rich Moss, I'm here at last!!

Hi to all, and thanks to Rich Moss for pointing me in this direction! I've just bought a '94 827 Sterling Fastback, photo's of which are posted in the gallery. I've owned many Rovers in the past, including 200's, 400's, and a MK1 820si Fastback. All good cars, I don't know why so many people knock R...

Hi Richard, and thanks. :D
I will be a regular here for the forseeable future, as I intend to keep hold of the Rover, as it suits all of my needs, plus I'll be pestering the techies for info!! :lol:

Seans Dad's Old Jaguars.

Just a few of the Jaguar XJ's that I've owned over the years. My first one was this 1990 XJ40 4 litre Sovereign, owned in 2004; http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l127/seansdad/jag_0001.jpg I then owned this 1992 XJ40 3.2 litre Sovereign, finished in Flamenco Red; http://i95.photobucket.com/albums/l1...

1994 L 827 Sterling Fastback.

Hi all, I'm Dan, new to the forum, but not new to Rovers. My first Rover was an old 1985 216S, which I owned way back in 1995, and it lasted me two years. Since then I've owned several Rovers, including numerous 400's, and a 200vi, which was a little pocket rocket! I also owned a MK1 820si Fastback ...
