Because of my recent back injury I wasn’t able to attend the British Car Show held this past weekend in Windsor Nova Scotia. That’s why I’m feeling so sad today, friends sent me lots of photos just so I’d know what I missed!!! However, it might be a blessing in disguise, there was a nice looking 1949 Rover P3 for sale and only asking $5000.00, I’m sure I would have been tempted. On a saner level, if that car is only worth $5000 then it probably has a host of issues like maybe rust in the chassis, a weakness of this model. In 1949 in Britain steel was in short supply many cars had thin metal chassis, the Rover in particular had a very short chassis that only reached to the front of the rear springs. Any rust in the rear half of the car could render it beyond help. But even knowing all that I may well still have been tempted to bring it home!!!! My weakness eh!!!
Cheers and keep reading
