Rover Signage

#1 Post by montegoman » Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:02 pm

Was anybody watching the One Show this evening and if so, did you spot the Rover signage in Mousehole, Cornwall. It was the (pre-B**) 1986 - 94 Maroon and Mink style presumably of Parade Garage who were the Rover dealer down there. The camera panned by it very quickly!

Didn't see it but I remember watching an episode of Coast about Mousehole and the sad lifeboat disaster at Christmas 1981 :(

This shot. At 2 minutes 59 seconds in on iPlayer.

1920 * 1080 screen grab available if anyone wants it (no less fuzzy though).

It'll be taken down and put on Ebay shortly...
