Hi there

#1
I bought my Rover about six months ago and have been on the forum a couple of times to pick your brains, so I thought I should introduce myself.
I live in Central Scotland and I sold my MGB roadster as I struggled getting in and out of it and bought the P6. At present I have got it up on ramps and am going through it to see what I actually have.
Let's hope we have a better year this year and get some milage under the tyres

I turned down buying an MGb after trying to get in and out of a friends. Deciding a more gentlemanly like carriage was needed. wife thought that was very sensible . good luck with your new car and may we all hopefully get a lot more mileage from them this year!

Welcome to the world of P6 ownership.

There is quite a few folk in the central belt who are always happy to help out fellow enthusiasts.

Looks like a nice example you have bought too.

I really liked my MGB but due to hip problems the only way I could get in and out of it was with the roof down. This made it into a fair weather car and so I decided it was time for it to go.
I always had a soft spot for the P6 as the engineering of it appealed to me, and as a petrol head I decided that everyone should have a V8 at some time in their life.
Luckily I found this one almost right away and it was the first one I went to see, and, after having it up on ramps for the last two months giving it a good going over I am delighted with its condition.

:thumb: Quite right you are too! I can only echo what has already been said, you've got yourself a really nice example of the breed there.
When I had steel wheels and hubcaps on my car the tyre fitter also used a few of those clipped on balancing weights on the visible side of a couple of the wheels. I disguised them with a bit of black enamel paint, then they didn't catch the eye as much as before.
I admit to being so envious of the gleaming and spotless condition of your Rover that I just had to find a tiny fault! :mrgreen: :rolleyes:

Luck with your P6. Two have come into my care this side of the pond to accompany two MGBs. Have since sold on the roadster, but found my upper 70s y/o body while preferring the comfort of the P6, I just can't bring myself to let the steady eddy reliable MGB GT go. Brit Stable.jpeg

Outside of work.

I spent 1 1/2 hours getting 20 pallets off a truck with a slippy slidey fork lift. Best fun I have had in ages :)

At home from inside garage, quattro tracks up the drive :)
