Rover The Long Goodbye
Rover: The Long Goodbye 20 March 2007 BBC Four
Documentary which traces the rise and fall of a great British brand.
In the days when Britain's car industry was the envy of the world, Rover
epitomised everything to which the driver of taste aspired, but in 2005 it
reached the end of the road. The film explores how Rover cars went from
defining their eras to becoming victims of their times, telling the story
behind the key models to the controversial joint ventures with Japanese and
Indian manufacturers in later years.

The V8 Barstool [S2 Ep. 4-3]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start

speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part
garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what
GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this
show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of
mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help
you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers
on your machine!

1966 MGB with a Rover V8 - Episode 1 - The "Slipped Liner"
