Car Of The Month :
My Pampered Lady by Graham1961
Ive owned quite a few cars since I started my driving career in 1978; these have included several Rovers, a Metro, a 214SLi and my current Rover 75 Connoisseur SE 1.8.
I had always admired the Rover 75 from the day it was released onto the market and I promised myself that I would have one someday.
Shortly after MG-Rover folded in 2005 I saw a 2004 registered Rover 75 finished in Firefrost for sale at the Bass Rock Garage in North Berwick,
I just knew I had to have it. After a rather heavy raid on all available finances it was mine.
Even after eight years I still absolutely love this car, Ive spent a great deal of money on her fitting extras and Project Drive reversal, including the following:
Manual rear window blind
Walnut gear lever knob
Croft's door finishers
Symphony head unit with cd auto-changer
Cowley rear pillar finishers
Carpeted heather kick panels
Door torpedo badges
Chrome bullet mirrors
Real walnut dashboard
Boot lid mounted warning triangle
Walnut and smokestone steering wheel
Rover embossed headrests
Cubby box rechargeable torch
Cubby box 12 volt auxiliary socket
Club badge on grille
The car has only done 37,500 miles and has a full service history (twice a year).
Despite the low mileage, I have kept every receipt and old road tax discs which are stored in a Rover branded leather zipped folder.
Hopefully I intend to keep this car for as long as possible.
My 75 now lives in semi-retirement, normally only venturing out for pleasure during the summer months,
to be honest its become rather pampered.
