interesting fact about 1990 early cars only 80 survivors by the dvla 39 on the road and 41 sorn , getting very scarce. like the pulsar silver one that the dealer has in pewsey wilts , would have been cheaper to buy that out of auto trader at £450 , in view what i have spent on mine, but we had ours nearly 20 years so part of the family and she has had a full overhaul.

Re: Rare 1990s 200's

Yes, the 1990s 200s are getting very rare, I have 1990 GTI H Reg, mine just about to go from SORN back to Licensed. MOT booked for 18th March.

Currently, DVLA shows only 5 1990 216GTi's are on the Road, and 11 on SORN, including mine.
See: http://rover-216-gti-web-site.myfreesites.net/

Who owns the 5 GTi's on the road, and what condition are they in?
Anyone know them and are they in the Club?

:unsure
