Default On Behalf Of The S-reg Hunters Crew

I would like to say were glad to be part of this club doing all we can on behalf of these early examples.I am proud that we "also" being club members that the directors have played there part with backing up the membership. its a well done to them also.



In personnally feel that the Rover 75/MGZT club is becoming a powerhouse and going from strength to strength.I just hope we can save and bring within the club as many of these early S plate cars as possible, but its nice to know the club owns the oldest known surviving model S525 OVP.

MG.

The oldest known R75 Tourer in Finland is up for grabs btw, is the club interested?
That would almost certainly be pre production on the line. Only a very few very early cars are handbuilt as they are so expensive. They would be so different from the production cars (things like fibreglass instead of plastic mouldings) that you would know straight away.

Wow !!! what a win win for the club, what a project and what a responsibility.

How about a special donation fund for those who can't physically help out (like us overseas members) who might like to donate a few dollars (quid)to do our bit for such an historical project as we can't get to Club meets etc.

Not sure yet Dave a (nominal) offer was made and accepted - but it may be waived - we don't know that though - we'll know soon enough though. Either way it was "chicken feed" price!

(not that I know the cost of chicken feed these days!! )
