(Another) Rover 3500 (SD1) For Sale in the US

I have a little stats counter on this blog. It's there just for my entertainment, I'm just curious as to how many people are reading this thing (the answer is a lot) and where they come from.

The other night I noticed a huge spike in the number of people reading an older post about a Rover 3500 for sale on eBay. I did a little digging and found that most of people reading that post were from the Seattle, WA, area. (Have no fear, I can't tell exactly where you're from, I can only get a general idea) Digging a little deeper I found that someone had linked my blog to a Craigslist ad for a Rover. That's cool. Anything that drives people to this blog is fine by me.

For a car that never sold well in the US, there certainly is a lot of interest in them. As I mentioned in that earlier post, I once owned one and found it to be a pretty good car. A little difficult (but not impossible) to get parts for in the US, but lots of fun to drive and more reliable than some people would make you believe. It's also very unique and attracts a lot of attention and questions.

There is no picture of the car listed on Craigslist out of Seattle. There's not much of a description either. But the seller answers his e-mails very quickly and I assume he'll answer any questions you may have.
