    Great selection of photos – I remember seeing some of them first time round (eg Montego, Rover 200, 45, 600). Looking through them all, some years on, reminds us that MGRover and its previous namesake’s did build some nice looking cars.

    What a pity it all went wrong.

  2. Borzy says:

    Hello,

    Could you or someone help me.I am looking for the 2004 CD on the Monogram Paint and Trim Programm for Rover and MG Cars.
    I would know if someone could make me a copy, against payment of course.
    Thank’s in advance for your reply on the following mail:
    eric.borzymowski@orange.fr
    Best regards.
    Eric Borzymowski.
