Hello I am a new member from Sweden. There are other Rootes car discussion forum, Imp, Commer, Hillman cars, but I expect you know this. It will be interesting to see how this will develop. Interest for the Avenger are grooving and that is good. See how scarce the Escort Mk 1 are. The same is happening to Avengers. But remember, Avenger is a better car!!!
Hi all, a quick introduction from me. A few of you will know me from RR and formerly the Imp Club forum, but I have tastes far outstretching that place so I don't exactly fit in anymore. I'm sure I will fit in here though
Another forum about old cars? Surely there's enough?
Well, no. From experience, there's alot of 'gaps' out there, especially when it comes to Rootes products. Sure, Imps get plenty of coverage, with the excellent & well organised Imp Club. The Commer vans get a share too care of Commervanfan etc.
But what of the rest? Arrow-series, Avengers, Super Minx & family.... when trying to find sources of information on cars like these it's like hitting a brick wall.
So why not a forum to bring it all together under one roof? Share knowledge, experience & the joy of Rootes right here.
Whether it's a 1955 Minx Californian, a '67 Super Snipe or an '82 Avenger, all welcome here.
What ever happened to the manufacturing drawing of Rootes cars, eg Hillman minx, after the company was brought? Is their an archive ?
