1991 Rover Maestro Clubman 1.3

One of a few excellent finds I stumbled across on a trip to the Essex suburbs of London yesterday. After having picked-up some magazines I'd bought off eBay, my son and I randomly turned down a few residential roads to see what could be found.

 

This was a chance sighting, when I'd driven around the block to take a second look at something else. I suspect it's in long-term ownership, and the plate on the front has a tag for Hicks Motor Group, with the early-mid '80s Austin Rover logo (I wonder if the plate came off an older ARG car?). My internet is very slow at the moment and I can't find anything on them.

 

The MoT check sits says it had done only 33k at its last test, with the mileage going up only a small amount each year. There is a typo in 2007 though, when they claim it'd done 295k miles!

 

Edit: In other BL/ARG-related news, on the way home I spotted a brown Marina or Ital estate on someone's driveway. Sadly it was the opposite side of a busy dual-carriageway so no chance of investigating further.
