I have a soft spot for the 827SLI.  Any Rover nut that 
lives in Sterling City should have a Sterling.  Or if you 
really like oddballs, there's the diesel (825SD?).  I've 
only seen pictures.  One of the New Zealand dealers has a 
75 V8 listed (NZ$77,000), but I won't live long enough for 
it to become "antique."  As far as I know, Ron Jones is 
still lurking around somewhere in San Antonio with his 
glass roof P6B and Rovers West was trying to get their act 
together a few months ago.  I think they still have the 
very rusty P6 Estate.  Two years ago there was a very nice 
Cyclops for sale in Kentucky and there's a RHD 80 that 
keeps popping up in Tuscon.  There are definitely some 
nice Rovers out there.
