My Fantasy Class Garage – Adrian J Clark (Mr Calrk)

To show that we are an equal-opportunities community, next up is Mr Calrk aka Randle.

The MG 6-owning, self-confessed chubby-chaser and SAAB enthusiast has put together his famous-five for your delectation.

Rover P6:

It really has to be in beige. My decision is purely because it’s still such a sexy looking thing and it is a car that personifies what Rover was about once. I don’t care what engine, I’d have it for the looks and experience alone.

 

Austin Allegro:

It really has to be beige, so I’d have it
in harvest gold. I think they’ve aged rather well and it is the car that defined BL (some would say everything that was WRONG with BL)

 

 

Morris Ital:

My sentimental choice, so doesn’t necessarily have to be beige, my dad had one. It was the first car I’d have travelled in. I think the marina is a better looking car, mind.

 

 

 

Leyland Sherpa:

Everybody needs a van. I’d probably want a beige one. I don’t want a Freight-Rover, I don’t want a Leyland Daf and I don’t want an LDV. I want a proper Sherpa.

 

 

MG SV-R:

Unfortunately not available in beige, but because it was one last ‘fuck you’ from Longbridge. I love the looks, love the fact that it’s got an ancient big American V8 in it, and it’s the last true new design from the firm (not counting the MG Motor UK stuff, as that’s basically a new company trading on a mixture of a dead badge and Barton engineering).

And that’s that, more from the MacDroitwich team later.

  1. A pleasing and eclectic selection, apart from the Allegro – the working man’s XJ-S.

    Some sort of LCV or utility vehicle should be mandatory. My ‘garage’ has two.

    I’d have included a P6 if it wasn’t for my tendency towards the recondite. It and the XJ6 book-ended the ’60s. The outstanding British cars of that decade?
