2005 Rover CityRover

2005 Rover CityRover

Forgive me for having been on a bit of a Rover binge lately, but for those who don’t know on 15th April 2005, the Rover Group finally ran out of money and Britain’s last volume car manufacturer disappeared forever. I remember well the BBC news reports showing workers being turned back at the gates of the Longbridge Plant in south Birmingham, their jobs finished and their cars ceased. In all, nearly 6,000 people in the Midlands were sacked upon the closure of Longbridge, and whilst Rover, a brand that had dated back to 1904 and had once been a symbol of pedigree British Motoring, finally died after a long and painful spell under British Leyland and ownership by BMW, MG was able to claw away from darkness thanks to Chinese investors, rescuing one of the most renowned and hallowed names in Motorsport history.

However, when it comes to what finally killed the Rover Company, what put the bullet into the back of their confused head, this is usually what people will choose. You’ve heard them all say this before, Auto Magazines, Fifth Gear, Top Gear, any other gear, they’ve all said the same thing, the CityRover was the evil that murdered Rover and the British Motor Industry.

But should we malign the little CityRover? Was it really the sole culprit?

I personally don’t think so, sure it didn’t help, but at the same time in order to understand Rover’s situation you have to go back to the early 90’s. In 1994 BMW bought Rover Group from British Aerospace and started to reorganise the poorly performing company and its damaged reputation under British Leyland. Throughout the decade the company either refurbished models from the 80’s such as the Range Rover, the Rover 200, 400 and 600, or replaced many former British Leyland Models such as the Montego, the Maestro and the Metro, whilst also developing new ones such as the Rover 75. Things were on a high note for the company, the cars were great, the quality was great, they were reliable, well performing, smooth, crisp, the motoring press more often than not lauded them for their precision and craftsmanship, with a style that harked back to the grand old days of British Motoring.

Sadly Grand Old Britain was seen less as a nostalgic roadtrip by potential British buyers, and more a crude attempt by BMW at stereotyping the British as Victorian relics of a dated and long dead social layout. Although older drivers and retired couples would buy them up in droves, the younger demographic wouldn’t touch them with a bargepole and Rover was losing a fortune. Things didn’t look good, the Metro wasn’t selling due to safety issues, the Mini was no longer a mass-production car and more a customer request novelty item, and while Land Rover and Range Rover were doing well in their own right, the Rover Company was haemorrhaging money and BMW lost all interest.

In 2000, BMW chose to break up Rover Group into its …

You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick introduction to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.
