    Well gang, this really happened; and believed by my buddies! I'm still giggling about it.

    How about you? What has your Z been mistaken for?

    My neighbour thought it was a classic Aston or Bentley - clearly he isn't a petrolhead...

    When I had mine it was usually an Aston Martin or a Maserati it got mistaken for. But my favourite moment was when a stunning girl called out "Hey - love your James Bond car".
    And before anyone else says it - no, I don't get such comments about my Rover 3500S. But it does attract a lot of attention all the same.

    No, mainly former police traffic officers who used to drive them as pursuit vehicles in the 70s.

    Don't worry, I don't think anyone has ever said such a thing about any rover:D

    Hmmm . . . Just watched the latest Top Gear which featured pop star JayKay. He has well over 50 cars including exotica like Lamborghinis etc, and when asked about his collection the one he chose to mention was his Rover P6!

    Not the way I saw it. He was talking about cars he loved from his past - and the P6 was obviously the first one that came into his mind. I'm loving my Rover - but I loved the Datsun too. I drove it over 32,000 miles in 6 years - probably more than you have done in all the time you have had yours. Don't dismiss other cars so easily until you have owned and driven them. Read any classic car magazine and you will see that both the Datsun AND the P6 are highly regarded classics for different reasons.
