Soon to be 623 owner...
Scott here from North East Scotland, I am 21 years old and have owned quite a few cars in my short driving career, but so far no Rovers, although I always wanted to get my hands on one.
Due to a left knee injury years ago I cannot drive a manual on a daily basis without getting moderate to severe leg pain, and since my last automatic (Mercedes C220 W202-body) was written off in December 2016 I have been driving my 1996 Peugeot 405 Quasar 1.9 turbo diesel daily, which is hurting it due to its increasing fragility at 21 years of age, and the stiff cable-operated clutch is hurting my knee something awful!!
So long story short, I stumbled upon a Gumtree listing last night for a 1999 Rover 623 GSi and after a few text messages back and forth with the owner, I have arranged to pick it up after work tomorrow evening.
I'm very much looking forward to buying it, and having two future classic cars in my possession!
That's all for now.
