Very nice model Marc! If memory serves that's Opaline Green Metallic and the registration denotes it's a 1985 car so one of the last - allegedly.

Certainly very detailed, a great shame they don't make an 800 version........... :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

Ah i did not know the colour name but realy liked it. It was this, or black.

Yes indeed!! Already emailed a lot of model companies when they think of making Rover 800 models.

This was to nice not to share some pictures here.

For us, the Rover cars are a bit like pets. So 20 may they had to join us for the big day! 19 may i collected the flowers an brought my, then future wife, to her parents. Then, my best man and me decorated the cars.
Picked up the flowers with my wifes Mitsubishi Colt:
Image
All suited up and ready to pic up the bride:

Image
After the special meet we drove to the location and took some pics.
This pic was made by Carina Calis:
Image
Image
Image
Then we hide the Rovers for the guests so we could make our entrance:
Image
After our arrival we were allowed to have the cars parked outside all day so they could be a part in a way:Image

The day after, still woozy from the big day before i took some nice snaps in the sun:
Image
Image
Image

Then headed home. The Rovers were loaded with gifts, clothes etc haha. But that is one of the great tings of them. A lot of room!:
Image
Image

Don't worry, there were also pictures taken from the wedding and not only the cars haha. was a great day and now of on our honnymoon! Bye!

This made me smile, polishing the wheels so the cars look their best for the photos. The expressions are good too.

Congratulations to you both

Normally we only use the wedding dress once, so it is good reuse for it, but only the day after the wedding !!!
