Interesting reading in this, I have to admit.

Confirms what I believed all along, the Marie Celeste was Rover Group's design division - their last work was the Rovers 25 & 45 .

Found this attached picture quite ironic - the British Public did know how good their cars were - and stayed away in droves...

Sad how many people were affected by the closure though .

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Yes very sorry for the loss of income and livelihood this had on so many people.

For me this seemed to encapsulate all that is wrong with British industry and the Britain of today..
