Ah-ha - a dealer. I should have known from the email
name. Let's see, a Rover purchased from Kent is
actually a Lincoln. To coin a phrase, it's
"RoverLincolnly". Perhaps it started like this: "For
sale - Rover, with Continental Kit - I mean a REALLY
BIG Continental kit".
I suggest that you should just start over with us and
inform Rovernet of your intentions for shipping in
P.S. It would have been an intersting spot to be in.
I can hear myself trying to verify that the "Rover" in
question was somewhat more "corpulent" than other
examples, perhaps due to long residence in the
benevolent clime of the Texas Hill Country.
