Pacamac, BO, cheese and onion crisps, trainspotting and living with your mam?

Some ancient Austin.

Yes I heard that as well. I can’t think who else he’d be referring to if not the Sags?

Personally I think they should do one. 

Unless it is Cheltenham, following the 'allegedly' acrimonious departure of his father, Gary.

Austin A35 ?

An Austin Somerset with a column gear change, panoramic sliding roof, acceleration of  0 to 60 eventually and   a top speed of approx 70 mph

Still a better, faster and more comfortable drive than the Allegro

I was going to guess Somerset , but I thought that was too obscure, stick with a 35  !

A40 Somerset? … (or similar) a neighbour had one when I was a kid..

My 1st funnily enough was also an Austin A40 (farina) in Red n Black (paid £40 for it in '73 was already an old banger but I loved it! :laugh:)  

 (Austin loved their 'counties' though, Devons, Dorsets, Somersets, and gawd knows what others, then the University towns, Austin's Cambridges, Morris's Oxfords Winchesters etc...  British car industry brilliant for all its faults)

Don't forget Hillman, my old man had a Husky followed by a Super Minx - had a hell of a kick back when starting it on the crank handle.

And Triumph, I had a Dolomite Sprint and followed that up with a Stag - both blew head gaskets twice. Loved both of them though. But the love of my life was my first motor, a Lambretta Li150 which got me and my Mrs to Weymouth and back on many occasions.

Back on topic, that memorial "stadium" looks like a tinpot shower of shite which belongs a few tiers down in the football pyramid. Its shockingly bad for a football league club. How much is a bit of paint FFS.

Very welcoming. All that's missing is a dirty great padlock and a note from the official receiver.

Tbh the toilet facilities outside of the main stand more than make up for this.

Loan them bugger all.

Why improve them with our cast offs? Anybody BUT them please. Our cast offs are far too good to go there and would probably help them.

NO deals with the scum please.

I had 2 Triumph Heralds, 1 Vitesse and a Mk1 Morris Cooper 1275S (not all at same time). Also started out with a popsicle purple Yam FS1E.

Put a Mk3 Spit engine in one Herald, and it was pretty quick.

Wish I kept the Cooper and the Fizz.

Mods were either  Lambretta or Vespa fans. I had a Vespa Sportique which was a strange design as the engine was fitted on one side of the frame and not in the middle.  Hardly ideal for stability, but it still got me (same as you) to Weymouth and Torquay many times. The misc chrome mirrors, crash bars and racks were probably worth more than the Vespa. This has nothing to do with Rovers, but it’s more fun than thinking about them and their tent based ground

Owned by your grandfather! That’s ruined my day as it makes me realise how old I am. I take consolation from the slogan I saw on a tee shirt - “I may be old but at least I saw all the best bands”

Common trait I believe. We had a 13/60, which did the same. Brilliant motor, I loved it. Walnut dash, leather seats, wood and wire steering wheel. And core plugs that would pop out at random times.

@Mike Hunt-HertzI too started off with a green Triumph Herald. Cracking little motor. Then got a 1600E. Found out it was 2 cars welded together. Pulled away sharpish from the lights at the top of Winterstoke Road and the drivers seat fixing bolts came away and I ended up on the back seat, frantically scrambling back to try and stop the car from going into the boozer opposite. They don't make 'em like that anymore!

Prior to that had a Garelli Tiger Cross. My dad worked at Rolls Royce and re-bored the piston, it went like shit off a shovel. That got nicked from Filton Technical College the day I put a Gert big chain on it for security.

He bought it from new and drove it until he died. Never went on the Motorway. He always pulled away in Second gear as there was no Syncromesh between first and second. The car was in show room condition until the end. My highlight as a child was indicators that flipped out from the door pillar.

A decent fizzy is worth upwards of £5,000. but I have seen them on sale if they still have the pedals and in mint condition for £10,000. If only we knew then what we know now.

Those Garellis are like rocking horse doo doos nowadays...fetch even more than fizzers. Bought by middle aged blokes trying to relive their youth, but with an extra five stone on board!

I think I practically gave mine away in 1983, but then nobody wanted them. Checked on DVLA website and KDD 78P last taxed in 1984, so almost certainly ended up as razor blades
