Gearhead here and have had a fair number of British Leyland rides in a fairly messy mix. Often have more than one project car at a time. None below were/are daily drivers, as I've had a company car for so many years.
Had a Maxi, a Mini Clubman and Mini-Metro Vanden Plas Princess (XYl's) among others like a R-16, a Minor Traveler, a Series Ia LR P/U, a Scorpio 2.9 Ghia, the Sierra 2.0 Estate, a couple CXs, and XM and a 160 kph/100 mph 2CV Special with a Mai Race engine. XYL also had a vintage Vanden Plas Princess 1300 which she thought was cute.
Still have from this era a XT4Ti (with some 'extra fire" breathed into it), a BX17GT, a 264 (less than 33,000 miles on clock), a 142S and a 504D. XYL is currently on that little C30T, a model that the Chinese dropped when they bought Volvo.
Wish I still had the 3500SD1 Twin-Plenum I drove on occasion working in Manchester - even though the build quality was suspect I really did like how it goes.
The Land-Crab was nice except wallowed in the twisties.
Oh - forget the Panhards - several PL-17/17BT's including a Tigre Cabrio. Whittled those down to just one PL-17 Tigre sedan.
Have only had a radios in a few, mostly as when on the road I "drive" hard.
BTW the XR4Ti, 264, 142S, 504D and BX were father-son projects that became father-checkbook projects and a couple of my own projects, and are all on the block.
