Re: anyone from sheffield or south yorkshire spotted a montego
I believe the p6 won an award for design or safety (can't recall which), and it was a classy car to look at (think series one 5-series, and you might be able to see the similarity).
The SD1 was a great car, built with incompetence/apathy and the poorest of materials. My cousin had 2, and they both turned into swimmng pools due to leaks around the rear window/windscreen.
The V8 made a great sound, if lacked outright grunt to match the noise.
BLMC/BL/ARG - 99% of their products snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
I saw an SD 1 driving through Weymouth a couple of days ago. Looked to be in a tidy condition. Always wanted one but when I first passed my test the insurance was sky high.
