Guilty pleasures: Nine Rovers you probably shouldn’t want to own

On December 9th the Daily Telegraph's Lifestyle Cars published this interesting article online.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/cars/news...want-to-own-b/

and my 1990 Rover Metro GTi 16 valve single point injection was photographed by someone at Brookland's Austin/Rover Day in 2013 and I did not even know that the image was going to be used until a member of the "Metro Owners Club" told me ...

888 Chassis 20 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Metro GTI cars were rather underrated. My dad had a lovely example about the time I passed my test. He purchased that and I had a 1.0 Metro Mk2 as my first car. No jealously (ever) when they were parked side by side. Honest lol.

Strangely enough saw an identical example to my first car a couple of years ago and purchased it as a novelty to have in the garage. I know they get a lot of flack but it puts a smile on my face each time I look at it. Memories of my distant youth.
