Twenty five years after they left the showroom, two near identical Rover 200s returned to their supplying dealer, Trident Honda in Ottershaw. The family run, former Rover dealer welcomed them back to celebrate their 25th birthdays.

Jeremy Howson, the third owner of '706', a Rover 214SLi wanted to mark the anniversary of his car and contacted Trident who were only too pleased to welcome the car back. Jeremy arranged for both previous owners to be at the event. Mr Jim Turner bought the car new from Trident on 14th March 1991 and lovingly maintained it for the next 22 years, before giving up driving and selling the car to Anthony Symes of Portishead, Bristol.
