You’ll have to be eagle-eyed to spot it, but I’ve reinstated the ‘Other Cars’ link on the site. Head up to the menu, above, click on ‘The Cars’, wheel down to ‘Other Cars’, and you’ll see an interesting collection of British cars we’ve covered on AROnline. Over the years, we’ve strayed from the rather constrictive Austin Rover brief on many times – either by dabbling with Rootes/Chrysler, dabbling with the small specialists, such as TVR, or by picking up some of our popular classics, like the Reliant Scimitar GTE (above).
These stories have always been a part of AROnline but, since the last redesign, which saw us drop the left hand menu, many of the more ‘rare groove’ pages were omitted in the interests of space and efficiency. However, as people’s computers become faster and more powerful, the limitations of a complex menu structure becomes less of an issue. In other words, technology is catching up with AROnline !
Anyway, at the moment, we have the brilliant AC 3000ME (below), a pair of Reliants, the Bond Equipe and the Trident Clipper (bottom). Oh, and the Sinclair C5. Forgive the last one in that list, it transcends two of my passions – cars and computers. There’s no denying that the C5 was the single-minded vision of one very focused individual – whether you love of loathe it, you can’t deny the C5 is a very interesting vehicle.
So, if you any suggestions about what we could add to the section, don’t be shy. Let me know, and as and when I get the opportunity, I’ll add in something new.
