    Hmm, this place has a certain character. That's cool with the cars. I wonder if they could be restored?

    [QUOTE=Potter;345398 I wonder if they could be restored?[/QUOTE]

    One can restore anything if you have the cash, and can source missing parts. However the Rover is not really worth doing - plenty of restored ones available at below the probable cost of restoring this one that has such a bad interior and missing panels. As for the Atlantic, looking at rear end this one has got terminal floorpan rot, missing trim and glass, with a very bad interior. Been there, done that on an Atlantic and a Nash Metropolitan many years ago when a mate and myself did old vehicles up - scrap yards were full of old stuff which you could get for a song when the first MOT tests struck home. Our best find was a pre-war Frazer Nash-BMW which we got roadworthy and then traded for a big Healey. The Healey was a good sprint car, but we should have stuck the Nash in the back of the barn - worth a goodly amount of readies today! But we were young and the good scrap yards were full of interesting MOT failures. Happy days!
