1973 Rover 3500 Review

My Everyday Drive Car.. — Fantastic machine, such a design classic, drives fantastic. Dont believe everything you hear mine's being super reliable and makes for stylish fast transport, just took for a fifteen hundred km drive last weekend to wellington from Auckland the long way and managed 28 mpg on the way back and i passed everything even if they were going fast, the old dog likes to be out front!

Pros: Styling, Handling, fantastic brakes, visibility, no shakes or rattles EVER!!  ( pet peeve with vehicles )

Cons: Sometimes gets hot, leaks oil ( who cares tho, only whinging driveway nazi's )
