Despite a real fondness for old Rovers I still find the P4 a hard one to call.
Compared to the P5, P6 and SD1 they are quite difficult to do something with and actually get it right, whilst like it's three successors it's surprisingly easy to completely ruin them.
There's a couple of the ones posted in this thread that look spot on to my eye, but others that I really don't care for. Lowering them does seem to help proportions some, although they do look like they want to be a bit wider for the height of the car, although I suppose if you made it a bit wider, altered the roof line and prodded it a little to make it a bit more right to my eye, you wouldn't be far off the P5.
I'd probably still buy one at the right price though.
A neighbour has a P4 under a tarp on his driveway, it's a sorry looking thing and I lack the creativity to see it as anything other than a sorry old car slowly decaying. Maybe I should show him this thread!
The old giffers in the P4 Guild had a hissy fit over this car , which amused me greatly. I'd love to have the skills to cram something along those lines in mine.
I guess it went something along the lines of 'youve ruined that....
exactly that , some of the members won't even tolerate electronic ignition , so this blew minds. The words 'ruined British heritage' were thrown about . It amazes me how upset some of these grown ass adults get over what is a fairly common car. Though I guess it happens in all dedicated owners groups
