    In 1987 I bought my Dad a nearly new Vanden Plas Metro 1300 Automatic. It was immaculate. Soon after that on the Edgware Road Edgware, someone ran into the back of it. It went to the main dealership just off the Edgware Road to be repaired, I picked it up, just left the Rover Dealer travelling on the Edgware road, and, an Astra GTE went straight into the back of the Metro.

    Sounds like two attempts at mercy killing to me (the car not you or your Dad) what did he do to you to deserve being bought a Metro Vanden Plas?

    I had two Metros. They were dead reliable and took me all over the country cheaply. Good ride for a small car too. Passed both on to my daughter.
