    :) Great stuff! I don’t know where I got Canvey Island from though....

    Windsor Safari Park

    There was a cracking video of a similar car on Google some time back, on a family trip to Canvey Island iirc (with a Barbra Streisand sound track!). Was that your vid by any chance?

    When was this engine used?

    It looks to be the early export-spec EFI, as was produced for the USA and Aus in around 1980. Unless the EFI has been retro-fitted, it should have a 8.13:1 compression ratio. Interestingly, the Plenum looks to be the opposite way around from what I've seen on a NAS SD1 too. Must mean that two...

    Napa NADA Makeover Underway

    Quite right too! :) Lovely colour, one of my favourites. Looking forward to seeing some pics of it out and about again soon.

    Square Wheel Award

    Ah yes, I've remember that episode too. The film I mentioned came out in '71 I think, probably filmed in the autumn/winter beforehand. Next time I see it I'll look for a red P6 parked up, though I'm sure I would have remembered seeing one!

    Square Wheel Award

    Shocking list of faults there Mike, especially from Rover at that time! Glad you got thing sorted eventually and kept the car all this time. Such a nice spec too, in Brigade red I'm guessing? To deviate entirely, I noticed from your letter that you were staying at Kenilworth Court at the time...

    V8 Block Coolant Drains?

    Hi Guys, Does anyone know what the thread is in the two coolant drain holes either side of the engine block, please? I'd like to get hold of a suitable tap or thread chaser for them if possible, as some decent soul in the past had Loctited in one of the drain taps, and I think some of the stuff...

    Rover 3500,3500S workshop manual.

    Hi, I'd be interested in that. Let me know how much to post please. Thanks. Peter.

    Nada Down Under

    Beautiful colour though 8) Is it an original colour option for a NADA? Lance LaCerte's NADA looks to be a similar shade, as seen over on British V8.

    Petrol sign

    Nice to see places like that still around. It reminds me a little of Mike Hawthorn's Tourist Trophy Garage.

    My mate Casper.

    Very sorry to hear this Pilkie. :( I always enjoyed seeing him pop up in your various thread pics, he seemed to have a charmed and full life at least.

    Yep, that's the P6 pump.

    Steering Wheel Cover

    I believe that the PAS wheel with the leather covered spokes was specified for both the auto and manual V8 models from around the time of the '74 model year for cars such specified. Though the auto's may have had them before this.

    Dashboard mat

    Probably for a Metro, rather than a P6.

    how long have you been hanging around the forum?

    2003 for me too. I visit here often but don't seem to post much these days. Love hearing about other members cars though!

    Shall I,Shan't I,Should I,Shouldn't I,???????

    Ah well, as long as they're kept safe then 8)

    Shall I,Shan't I,Should I,Shouldn't I,???????

    I've voted no as well, the car looks fantastic as it is with the purity of the S1's lines. I'd also keep the original number plates on if it were up to me too, it just looks so right with them on.

    Hi Dave, It's best to just use the standard Bluecol blue Antifreeze. Mixed 50:50 with de-ionized water, after a good flush through of the cooling system. Avoid the modern Organic Additive Technology (OAT) antifreezes, which are usually orange, red, pink or purple, amongst other colours. You...

    Nice! Was this ever in or around Chester? I remember one very similar that I used to see (and hear!) quite often around the Broughton area some years back....

    How about these Stina; I've bought some Bosch plugs from them previously for another car.
