 Our informative RCCSA Club members magazine ‘Roverdrive’ out now for August.

Our Editor Sean will be featuring a series of members cars on the cover of Roverdrive, and this month it is Ken Leeks lovely Midnight Blue Rover 75. Ken also presents the story outlining the extensive work he has done to the car since purchasing it earlier this year. Graham Hunter shares some of his workshop experiences including an important warning to P5 owners, plus a wrap up of the successful progressive dinner for club members. With the AGM looming our President Lindsey appeals to all members to nominate for our committee to keep our club healthy and prosperous.

Committee nomination forms can be downloaded from the ‘members only’ page on this website.

Remember, if your MEMBERSHIP has not been renewed your historic vehicle will not currently be registered!

 

Members can also view all electronic editions of Roverdrive on the ‘members only’ page of this website.

 


 

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 Vogue, Sport, Evoque and Velar .

 


 

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.
