Laverty seems to be reaching a bit this week; both in his car of choice and his defense of it. This week's example of automotive crapitude? The Rover 200. The Hecklerspray scribe suggests buying a 1.4L saloon, which to us doesn't sound like a whole helluva lot of fun at all, but you know, the Brits have their quirks, and the quirkiest (or most aged) among them will come to the defense of the long-struggling, now-comatose brand. "Make no mistake," says Laverty, "While a Rover 200 is the future of car boot sales on a Sunday morning, nobody anywhere will ever believe they are cool." No, and we won't believe they're lovable, either.
