    Just spent a weekend in Burton upon Trent, most of it at the National Brewery Centre. This has to be one of the best venues ever for an RSR National Rally: a huge car park, a very large and fascinating museum, surprisingly good food in the restaurant and, best of all, a wide selection of some of the world’s finest ales, including the legendary Worthington’s White Label and draught Bass. If, as happened last year, the weather turns against us, it definitely won’t be the end of the world in Burton.

      Welcome to the RSR and congratulations in the purchase of your P3. It depends on what parts you are short of or need replacing. Meteor Spares Ltd @ Nottingham and Viking Engineering Developments Ltd @ Leeds are some good places. Another is Fred Boulton @ Stoke on Trent ( Full details in the bi-monthly RSR magazine (Freewheel). If you join the RSR , you can get an online copy of Freewheel if you prefer. Have you any photos of the car, suggest post them on the RSR Forum . Rgds, Chris C. RSR Regional Rep Coordinator

    I notice from December’s Freewheel that work on the National Rally is progressing apace. I also note that the nominated hotel is a Premier Inn. On checking their web site I find that there are 2 in the area. Which one is the intended venue?
    Looking forward to the event

    • #7 by Chris Cartmell on December 23, 2014 - 11:57 am

      The Premier Inn , Burton on Trent Central, Wellington Road is the one we are intending using.

    I have a set of door restored wooden cappings + some other wood window surrounds from 1946/12 saloon that are free to anyone who cares to pick them up. Located in Exeter. Contact on

    Andrew Long
    PS. If the owner of ANV115 (1938/16 saloon) is out there I have history and photos from 1989 to 2000 if interested

    A few days ago I wrote offering Freewheels from the sixties.
    I have also a copy of Rover Memories, published 1966, a first (but perhaps the only edition) – hopefully a member might be interested to buy both items together.

      Which particular 1960s issues?
      And how much altogether?

    I’m rather puzzled by John’s contribution to Home (Oct. 24th.). The 1937 Rover 10,registration number FMT 314, and always called “Daisy”, was purchased by me from Peter Ellis of Odiham in 1982, 32 years ago. I kept it for 22 years before selling it to Ray Horne of Raunds, Northamptonshire, in 2004. Ray still campaigns it every season, so I see it fairly frequently in summer. I’m certainly “a man from the Midlands”, but had no dealings with anyone called John in connection with this car. There is a photo of Daisy on p. 15 of James Taylor’s book, “The Classic Rovers 1934-1977″.
    I am sure someone in the Club will be interested in the 10/25 booklet John is very kindly offering. This model was produced in the first few years of the 1930s and predates the cars we refer to as P1s and P2s.

    I’m sure you realise that according to DVLA this vehicle is still on the road. Taxed til 01 June 2015

  9. #14 by John on October 25, 2014 - 3:23 pm

    Perhaps 25+ years ago I had a 1937 Rover 10 which I thoroughly enjoyed but because of age etc the car was sold to a man in the Midlands

    If I remember correctly the car reg was FMT 314

    My reason for writing is that I have just come across an “Instructions and Upkeep and Maintenance of the 10/25HP Rover car.

    Is this of any value to any of your members?

    • #15 by Paul Hart on November 25, 2014 - 10:15 pm

      That man would have been Howard Buchanan: I have pictures from c.1982 of him with the car a 1937 10 h.p. – which he retained until a few years ago…
