As you’ve read elsewhere, Richard Kilpatrick is currently enjoying the patronship of my Rover SD1. And by the looks of things, he is relishing the experience, even if he’s finding that he’s going to have one or two little jobs to do along the way (isn’t that always the way?) He seems to be getting into the swing of things, though – so much so that he’s already bought himself the matching launch brochure to go with the car.
He’s scanned it in and sent it across to me… and I thought it was too good an opportunity for you all to miss. So click on the link and enjoy the full 1976 Rover SD1 experience in its full brown-beige-and-goldness in true 21st century PDF’d glory.
Let us know what you think… is this still the best car British Leyland managed to build badly?
