Abusing a Rover 820!!
This one was picked up as a "non runner", with a severe head gasket problem... so we intended to strip it of all useable bits, to keep our own 800's going.... Although we had V6's, a lot of the other bits were common... and this was a particularly rare 8v model, with a carburettor, it seemed a shame to kill it, but we did, and had some fun in the process... I'd like to add that I am NOWHERE to be seen in this vid!

My 1987 Rover 820 Si - walkaround and startup
Since the weather is particularly nice at the moment I thought I'd do a little vid of my pride and joy. She's a 1987 Rover 820 Si Mk1 saloon in shantung gold with just 22500 miles from new on the clock. I've had her about a year and bought her from another 800 enthusiast to replace a troublesome Audi 200 Quattro that i'd pretty much given up with. As you can see she's had a very easy life and has been cosseted from new. I only drive her when the weather is nice and to shows (my everydayer is an almost as nice 1989 Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 L) Given that she is the same age as me, she's done very well to survive in such amazing condition, 800 especially in Mk1 form are become rarer and rarer which is a real shame because anyone who has owned one will probably tell you how lovely they are.

Design with Style -- The Rover SD1
Rover and British Leyland were beset by problems in the mid 1970s. Out of this cauldron of mismanagement came the Rover SD1 in 1976. It was called SD for the Specialist Division and 1 for the first car to come from the in-house styling department. Despite a dramatic, innovative design both inside and out, the option of classic V8 grunt, and more or less universally praised dynamics, the SD1's reputation -and its longevity suffered at the hands of a company in meltdown. And it could all have been so different. The car, which was styled by Rover's design genius David Bache, had some grand ambitions. It had been designed to look like a family version of contemporary Italian supercars (they even got a load of Italian supercars in for comparison purposes early in the design process), while the attractive interior was intelligently designed from both a user's and an engineering perspective. Such was BL's confidence in it that they ploughed £31 million into a new factory (which in the end would be mothballed after just five years it even received rave reviews from the motoring press. "It is hard to be over-enthusiastic about the new 3500" said Autocar. "On every score, its qualities justify any kind of enthusiasm. It would have been hard to predict, especially looking at the bald paper specification, just how well the car would perform, handle and ride. "Add to that the spaciousness and aerodynamic efficiency of the body, and the attention paid to ensuring that the car will last, and it is easy to see why all competitors are casting worried glances, not only at the car but also at its price. If the 3500 will be built in sufficient numbers, if the quality can be maintained along with the price, and if the ground is not cut from under its wheels by ill-advised legislation, the new 3500 should be one of the successes of the decade." But production numbers, of course, could not be maintained and nor could the quality. And all we are left with in the 21st century is a whole bag of 'what ifs' and a dwindling handful of what was once one of the most promising cars ever to be created in Britain.
