Kevin Rover p5b Coupe

The Rover P5B Coupe is personally one of our favourite cars. Having watched The Petrol Age with Paul McGann recently and watched him cruise about in his white one we started to ask how many of these cars are out there being used and kept going.

So it's time for part two, if you are eagerly awaiting pics of a completed car then I am afraid we are not there yet. She is still in the workshop in the careful hands of Mike our trusted mechanic.
