Came across this gentleman by the name of Geraint Roberts on Facebook. He's obviously a man of good, and perhaps, rare taste as evidenced by his car collection as shown on Facebook. Some very delectable machinery on display and, unfortunately, languishing in a paddock. However, it's a good find, as he also owns a manual with overdrive P5 3 litre. Nice collection of cars. Benz Boy should approve. Regards Styria

I have had a closer look at some of those cars Patrick. For starters, I think I have spotted not one, but two, Alfa Romeo 2600 Sedans. They are rare - indeed, I have only ever seen one in real life, and that was at an Eastern Creek Display Day. There is just something very special about them, as also applies to the four door Lancia Flaminia Sedan parked alongside the Rover P5. Incidentally, the lettering on the Rover as an extension of the trim strips only ever featured on the 1960 model - it really looks like an add-on and I certainly think it looks out of place. Regards Styria

Mate,
I have ZERO experience in the cars you mention, that’s why this forum is just fantastic and the sharing of this experience is just the best.

I need to spend two full days at Eastern Creek (where my Rolls-Royce earned a trophy a few years ago) with you guys, just showing me about these type of cars I know nothing about.

I spent a few hours with Brian at the RROC national event in Canberra a few years ago, and what I learned from Brian in those few hours regarding Bentley’s was just staggering.

The knowledge here is incredible.
Thank you gents.

According to the James taylor book the front wing rover logo was kept on the USA models even through the MKII. Not sure why.
