This is my 1999 Rover 820. (The badge says '800' but it's an '820'). I
bought it at the beginning of March 2011 for £380. It's running great ...
I use it daily to get to and from work. I've done just over 4000 miles (by
In this video, my mum and her friend (Byron) have just come back from a
It has a 2ltr 16 valve DOHC engine and is manual. It's in British Racing
Green with a beige cloth interior.
Everything works on it, including the 6 CD player.
I've had to spend about £600 on it, so far ... A new radiator, bottom
hose, starter motor and cam belt.
The Exhaust is blowing a bit, and
there are slight leaks from the power steering and, of course, the engine
... It's done a lot of caravan towing so the rear bearings are a bit noisy.
Not major problems.
It's great to drive an old British car even though it's not as flash as the
new European stuff ... and I feel as though I'm getting value for my money!
It's very comfortable on a long drive and surprisingly nippy around town.
Biloxi, Mississippi I-10 Car Crashes Into Semi, Explosion

The time shown on the video is wrong, this happened monday, august 11th
A car t-bones a semi truck on I10 near Biloxi, Mississippi. The car struck
the fuel tank of the semi causing a large fire ball. The doors of the car
were jammed shut and the driver suffering a broken leg could not exit the
Luckily my father had a fire extinguisher on hand to fight back the flames
and give enough time to pull the driver and her 1 year old granddaughter
out of the flaming vehicle. Once the passengers are free from the vehicle
the flames rapidly grow in strength consuming the vehicle.
Thankfully my father had the presence of mind, bravery, and forethought of
carrying a fire extinguisher, to be the first person on scene to risk his
own life in order to possibly save another and to inspire others and lead
them into taking action. Everyone involved in the rescue effort is a hero
in my books.
The police and fire department responded within minutes of the accident and
also deserve praise.
Remember to treat truck drivers well as they are often the first responders
in automobile accidents.
Everyone involved was okay, the driver of the vehicle suffered a broken leg
and all others had only minor injuries.
My father said he was surprised he was the first one there while everyone
else stayed in their vehicles. It takes a huge amount of bravery to be the
first to lend a hand. My guess is most people were hesitant to help because
they figured the occupants could not have survived.
When he went to pull the child out of the car the smoke made it very
difficult for him to breathe and his only thought was getting the child out
of the vehicle.
