Beautiful history.

I also have Rover and Bmw, but they' re both in Italy.

Rover P6 2000 Tc is in Udine, Bmw 318 i in Rome.

Now I finished Rover restoration and, after a little accident, I'm
beginning Bmw...

Best regards, Gianluca.

I thought I was the only person with Rovers in both Hemispheres of the 
globe. I have a 2000TC in the US, and a 2000 automatic is Australia.
