We have remarked previously on the quite remarkable number of P4 Rovers which are still serving their owners and the majority of which are in extremely presentable condition. On average you encounter at least one every ten miles if you count them on a journey and only recently, having remained on a pristine 95 I turned a corner and, there was another immaculate P4. This is why we ran a three-page article on these cars of the 40/50s last May. The Rover Owners’ Association is aware of this phenomenon, because the current issue of its Review contains a photographic tribute to the other models, which illustrates five, in typical settings; it is interesting that they are referred to even in this Rover publication as “our favourite motoring ‘aunt’.” Indeed, the full affectionate description is: “. . . they have the manner of a well-loved relative who, though not quite of this age and a little overweight, still retains the admiration and respect of the younger members of the family.”—W.
