Farewell MG Rover

Sad news today about MG Rover, the last British-owned volume carmaker, going bust with the loss of 6,000 jobs. MG Rover’s Longbridge plant has been manfacturing cars for 101 years.

I still have very fond childhood memories of riding in my father’s shiny black Rover SD1, which at the time was one of the most futuristic-looking vehicles on the road (and slightly reminiscent of the KITT car in the TV show Knight Rider!).
