One of Russ Swift's Display R8s in "The Way We Were"

Post by GTiJohn »

In a bumper edition of Classic Car Weekly, there's a 2-page "The Way We Were" spread of a photo of a Darlington retail carpark from 1995, with a Rover 400 from Russ' display team bang in the centre.

David Simister, who wrote the article, was in touch with us a few weeks back as he wasn't sure what the car was. We were able to put him in touch with Russ who confirmed the details of the car :angel

It's the edition dated 18th October 2023 with 'NEC Show Preview' on the cover

I let Russ know and he replied:

Thanks for alerting me to the Classic Car Weekly feature, I picked one up today. My wife's Honda Civic is 2 parking spaces away. We were probably shopping for something at Comet!

I really like those ‘The Way We Were’ spreads - especially now they’re featuring 90’s pictures, so quite a lot of childhood memories for me. I officially feel old!
