Top 10: Cars from the BMC and Leyland day
An impressive and rather fitting turnout of 30 Rover 800s converged on the British Motor Museum at Gaydon to celebrate the model’s 30th anniversary.

Rover 75 Connoisseur
The 75 is really starting to take off in classic circles, and while this example was far from concours in terms of its condition, it was clearly owned by an enthusiast and kept in preservation. And that’s a good thing, because there were only 500 or so 75s built in the love-it or loathe-it colour of Primrose Yellow. This is an extremely rare survivor, though it’d be interesting to see how well it responds to a T-Cut!
