Often at classic car shows we see MGB's with Rover V8 engines. This is the man who started it all off, Mini racer Ken Costello. This is a 1968 pic

October 4th 2000. The last Mini leaves the production line to be replaced at Longbridge by the Rover 75.
MG Rover Phoenix 4 fatcat Kevin Howe does the talking.
It has been pointed out to me that the Union Jack is still being painted as Mr Howe speaks !!
