It’s been a long and tough 2010 so far. There never seem to be quite enough hours in the day to get everything done, what with the demands of Octane Magazine and AROnline but, here we are, still delivering great stories online. This week’s scoop about the Rover 55 is a case in point – and the reason why this site, and the stories that are on it, will never die through lack of interest.
Simply put, there will always be new material coming out of the woodwork, new cars we never knew about and missed opportunities that will bring a tear to the eye.
Anyway, it’s time for a few days off… but the site will continue ticking along thank you very much. We’ll be bringing you the latest news, all the blogs you could ever want and more of the same copy that you seem to enjoy reading. Thanks to Alexander Boucke and the rest of the team, AROnline will be at the forefront of all new developments.
As for me – I’m off for a quick break in France. I was going to take the Polski-Rover SD1, but that’s on display at Vintage at Goodwood this weekend, so instead, I’ll be cruising down in a nice Lexus IS220d. It might not look or feel like a Rover, but it’s certainly painted in what looks like a fetching shade of Nightfire Red.
When I get back next week, I’ll start planning an AROnline gathering. We’ve not had one in ages so it would be nice to meet you… and give that old Rover of mine a bit of an outing.
