A nice little piece, plus some videos

Nice to hear how it felt in the US to be on the receiving end of Rover's big idea

Nice find Adrian, shame they're misinformed about the origin (French - Valeo) of the alarm system on 800s but overall a very positive review! Haven't watched the vids yet, perhaps later but it all goes to show that the original misconception that the Sterling cars were unreliable was probably down to original owners moaning in the attempt to get money back. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

I have more time to answer...

I love such road trip and when it is made with a car I love, I love it square !!!

Last evening, in my bed, I thought at such trip, Start from Angoulême and going to Stockholm to see Manalishis, with a detour to pick up scoobyh123 in the Suffolk !!!

I will search some sponsors for that...

Nice idea Stephan but i don't have a passport so couldn't join you. Also the cost of the channel crossing at the moment (whether by Eurotunnel or traditional ferry) is extremely high and gets higher from the end of July. I know this as i've been organising some tickets for a friend whose daughter is having a wedding celebration in Chateau de Miserai sometime in July.

Good luck with the road trip idea though, looking forward to progress on that one! :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Ha! Love it. You'd have to book in a stop-off at Rimmer Bros. That ferry cost might be roughly the same as the postage charges they apply :D
