Just thought of this as I was in the Shower. Hows about SteveC and JohnS rally around the different agents for some Celebrity MG-R drivers to show their support for the survival of the brands on Monday morning?

I'm thinking the likes of Jimmy Carr and John Nettles who have made the fact that they own a Rover 75 quite public. I think it would be a great way of getting public awareness out to the general public, and it would be nice to see SteveChilds on Midlands Today side by side with the two of them...

What do you reckon?

Maybe Matthew Pinsett could make an appearance as well?

Absolutely superb idea Bazzer :)

Given that Stephen lives in California and Steve will be en-route to Longbridge on Monday.... I guess that means it is down to me. I'll get on to it straight away :)

Thanks

John

I Think Geoff Horsefield (West Brom Footballer) Drives a ZT. and if I'm not mistaken is a 'fan' of MGR.

I'm sure I saw that somewhere.:idea:

Yup, please put down any MGR driving celebrities you are aware of. The British public have an obsession with celebrities... if we get them on MGR's side, then I think MGR is home and dry :)

Regards

celebs rovers......

Johhny Briggs ( Mike Baldwin in Coronation Street ) he insisted on driving a Rover in the show so would be worth a try.
