"Hi Jesmond, We met up with you in May 2017 to view the low mileage Imperial Maroon Mk2 Jaguar 3.4 which you had for sale at the time (advertised in a Car magazine as ‘The Loveable Rogue’) - which we subsequently purchased - photo attached. I expect that as with most people, there is always likely to be a bit of apprehension when buying anything mechanical second hand – especially a 60 year old vintage / classic motor vehicle - and we were no different. You will possibly recall that it’s body and interior is in excellent original condition, and it has proven to be in equally outstanding condition mechanically as well. Just to let you know that this car (as I suspect you expected it to be) is a real gem and we are very very happy customers of yours. Up until now it has been used largely on VCC outings, but we have recently joined the Manawatu Branch Jaguar Club so that we can further enjoy the car."Brian & Catherine Abraham, Manawatu, New Zealand
The Austin Montego is a British family car, that was produced by British Leyland from 1984 until 1988, and then by Rover Group from 1988 until 1995.
In New Zealand, the Austin Montego was launched in 1984. The only models available were the manual 2.0-litre HLS or Mayfair versions, and only in estate form. The sedan version was not offered in New Zealand due to concerns that it would compete directly with the Honda Accord, locally assembled by the New Zealand Motor Corporation, which had changed from assembling BL to Honda models. Also available from 1987 the Montego sedan was sold in the Vanden Plas range with the 2.0-litre fuel-injected motor.
From about 1989 onwards, a wider range of models were imported by a new company, Rover New Zealand; this included sedan versions for the first time. Also new were the MG 2.0 range (identical to the MG Montego sold in the UK), and all wore the official MG badge. The main Auckland dealer developed an air conditioning system as an option for these models in conjunction with local specialists.

As far as investments go, there's little doubt classic cars are one of the most fun.
As it turns out, they're a good financial decision too...and what constitutes a classic car?...well, the baby boomer generation were into their ’60s and ’70s cars, but we’re seeing new emerging classics amongst younger buyers, with the ’80s and ’90s stuff starting to come through.
This is a good, honest, inexpensive entry into the classic car scene. Now's the time to buy.
Will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
