Craig's Rover 114GSi VVC

Craig's Metro story started 6 years ago at the age of 16 when he picked up this 114GSi locally for £350. It's had a lot of changes since then, with many more planned for the future!

Craig tells us of his Metro journey, starting at 16 years of age. He picked up this 114 GSi locally for £350. He'd actually known about the car for about 8 years, and was delighted to find it for sale when his search for a Metro got under way. Although it was automatic and SPI, which wasn't ideal for his plans, he went ahead and snapped the car up. Since then the car has had a whole host of work done. An MPI to manual conversion being two of the main changes... and it is now on its fourth engine! Craig tells us how other cars, including Metros, have come and gone, but this one has always stayed. Lets see what the future holds for this one!
