Today it was MOT time for my father's MK2 827 Si saloon. We knew that the front tires were a bit old and dry and that was the only remark. When the new tires were ordered, delivered and installed today the MOT pass was a fact!

It's a shame there was never a Rover 800 estate really - if there was i probably wouldn't have the Volvo! I've sometimes thought of getting a Honda Accord Aerodeck (94-98) and fitting Rover 600 wings, bonnet, lights etc to it and debadging it so it's the Rover 600 estate that never was but that's too much work for what i'd gain.

On the good side, the Volvo has a 90 degree V6 that pushes out 170bhp so it shares at least something with its driveway partner! Also when they made the prototype SD1 estates, one of them used a Volvo back end so there's a small link! :P :wink: :D

Dave

A Rover 800 estate would have been a nice thing. Huge space already with the saloon and fastback. So even more with estate.

That 600 estate project sounds cool!

Logic you went for the Volvo when it has some connetions to our beloved brand. :) ;)

You're not wrong there Marc! The 600 project isn't ever likely to happen sadly and the one thing i didn't mention is that Honda made a Coupé version of the Accord the 600 is based on. In the USA, they also fitted it with the C27 engine so all parts are available for converting a 600 to a 2.7 V6 - now THAT would be a really cool project! :P 8)

The 760 V6 estate is probably about as close to what an 800 estate would have been if there had been one in terms of size, engine, equipment etc and even more so now :

Also has the 6 disc CD changer hidden in the back. :wink: :D

It would indeed fly Marc!

Thanks! I've been using Volvo expansion tanks and wheels on my 800 for a while so thought it was time to return the compliment!

There will probably be a Rover cooling fan sprouting from the Volvo rad at some point as well........ :wink: :D

Dave

Earlier this year 2019 (march if i remember correct) i was asked if i would like to have my grey 827 Vitesse on display on the Rover Owners Club stand on one of the largest indor British events of the year. I was honored but i decided to give the honor to my dad and his Jett Black MK2 827 Si Saloon.
