Today, Driven To Write has featured the Rover P5 and P5B. The article is to their normal high standard, avoiding many of the tired cliches that other motoring journalists fall-back on.
There isn’t a great deal of new information contained within, but it is a well written piece (certainly above my literary capabilities). To quote an example: “The P5 would be the last of its line, not only in evolutionary terms but also in what it came to represent. Emblematic of traditional nostrums of position and authority; these, like the Rover itself fell victim to sweeping societal change where such matters became (for a brief time at least) somewhat democratised.”
It’s pleasing to see the P5 and P5B getting an all-too-rare moment in the spotlight. The comments are often worth reading – it seems many of the regulars on the site work within the car industry and have some interesting perspectives.
