Our informative RCCSA Club members magazine ‘Roverdrive’ is out now for April.
This months magazine has a wrap up of the McCracken family’s photographic treasure hunt, technical information on gear change adjustment for owners of P2 Rovers, and details of up-coming fun-runs and events!
Members can also view all electronic editions of Roverdrive on the ‘members only’ page of this website, plus more photos from ABD 2018 in the ‘photo gallery’ page, under ‘events’.
David Bache was responsible for styling cars for Rover that are still recognised as icons today. He is responsible for work on the P5, the P6 as depicted above, and the entire SD1 project. He was responsible for the detail that gave Land Rovers their distinctive shape by introducing, among other changes, the ‘hip’ on the series 2, that carried over to the Defenders right up to 2016. The distinctive detail changes David made to the first Range Rover are still used to identify the vehicles DNA on the current Range Rover Vogues and Sports.
Sadly this is the very last Rover to be produced. It is a 2005 firefox red, CDTi Rover 75 Connoisseur, and is now on display at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon in the UK.
