Hi Ben,

Bill Osmond doesn't subscribe to the Rovernet, but you'll be happy 
to hear that he did in fact get the windscreen into his P4, and plans 
to bring it to British Car Day this week-end.  I think he won first prize 
in the old Rover class with his car at last year's show.

1970 P6B, Bill Osmond and Donna Newman their P4s, Piers

The latest weather forecasts seem to bear out the truth of the old 
adage "The sun always shines on British Car Day"  (even if only for 
a few minutes!)
