Welcome to Dave's Website...

Why a SD1 site?

I have created this site because of my passion for the Rover SD1. Over the years I have owned several Series 1 & 2 cars from the base 2000 to the luxury 3500VDP. I saw my first SD1 at the age of seven; a Tumeric yellow series 1. I thought it was the most fantastic car I had ever seen! Four years later my maths teacher bought a new series 2, 3500 in Oporto red. I used to drool over that car (much to the bemusement of my friends).

At the age of nineteen I bought my first SD1 second hand from my uncle. It was a 1980 series1, 2600 in Midas gold in very good condition. I have had various models since, over the years.

Almost two years ago I acquired a brain tumour (removed now). I was banned from driving for a year after my radiotherapy. Because of the recovery process (a long long time) , hence the creation of this site.
I now own a mint 1983 10,000 miles only 2600S

If anyone would like to contrbute to this site, I would love to hear from you.
