There could be a few on here who might just fancy a Citroen SM.

Fair enough have a vitrual one here, but what "factory" colour are you going to choose...

Van spotted a 2-tone recently.....maybe a special order, or maybe the factory churned out a few. Haven't found a pic on the net yet of a two-tone SM but you can have 100 points if you come up with the goods.

Has grey made it to the pages of this thread?

If you are going to have a grey, better make sure its Lunar

That car was originally owned by a certain ex-bank manager Allan Hewitt, founding treasurer of the P6 Rover Owners Club.
I was driven in it by Allan many times, from Surrey to club committee meetings in Warwickshire.
It was always near-immaculate, and a regular winner or runner-up in club concours.
Used as an everyday, the r.m. comes as a bit of a surprise.

I remember we did sort the headlights, though, replacing Rover's original Lucas sealed beams — u-n-b-e-l-i-e-v-a-b-l-e 37½ watt dip beams — with four new Hella H4 units. A transformation!

This is my favourite colour, favourite car actually - in spite of the failed steering rack!
