Cool Rover 75 V8

We're on the lookout for a Rover 75 V8

Preferably a tourer, but if not a saloon would be fine.

Watcha got?

FlyingBanana on here has a V8 I heard he was willing to sell.

Pooky Bear I think he's nicknamed it.

I am a member of the two-sixties, and have looked at the list - even been to view a few cars that are on it, but thanks anyway.

There's a nice one I really like, but the grill surround has been stolen - probably because they are so difficult to get hold of - which is why I've also got a wanted thread for one of those. Incidentally, the car that requires it is not on the two-sixties list....

I know Bob has decided to keep the bear, but I wouldn't be interested anyway as it's an MG, rather than a Rover.

David, who maintains the list, can only post cars he has found for sale or has been told about. Just need to be persistent, keep checking, took me a few months to track a V8 down. One I found one turned out to be in Ireland, phoned the guy but his accent was so thick he could have been offering me the car for free I wouldn't have known

The one that needs the surround l isn't advertised on the internet, and when I queried the seller about that he asked me not to pass the details on... very strange...

But hey-ho!

Yes, not going to buy one just because it's there and for sale, it's a big purchase and it needs to be *right*

Thanks

I've already asked the seller last week for some more pics/info before I go to view, as it's a long way up to Edinburgh and I don't want to waste either of ours time if it's not what I'm after - but I've had no reply as yet!
