I was not aware my tetchy reply would have opened such a can of worms. I
certainly didn't expect the level of correspondence it generated. I am happy
that things are now back to normal and we can concentrate on Rovers again.

I have now woken up and am amazed at the trail which my (well
intentioned)message has caused. Obviously I will need to take a refresher
course in politeness in e-mails.

I posted my message because I was surprised, given the North American
origins and general domination of the Rovernet, that regular users might be
unaware that the 3500S designation was used for the V8 cars exported to
North America at a time when the manual transmission version had not been
introduced. These cars are so regularly mentioned that I just assumed that
pretty much everyone on the Rovernet knew this as it's not one of the most
obscure facts about the cars. I am well used to the beliefs amongst those of
my fellow countrymen who don't have the advantage of knowing about Rovers in
an international context that "S" means manual transmission, but with the
international exchange on the Rovernet I thought people learnt very quickly
that there had been the "oddity",  from the perspective of the rest of the
world, of the 3500S auto in North America.

Anyway, apologies to anyone who found my mode of expression anything less
than courteous. Oh, and by the way Glen, I was diappointed not to receive a
card for my 100th Birthday :).
