   From what I gather(could be wrong), Leyland doesn't exist.  Rover 
cars used to have a relationship with Honda. Remember the Sterling?  
Also, in the sitcom Keeping Up Appearances (British), the main 
character's car is a Rover 800(or something like that), but is clearly 
identical to the Honda Civic.  Maybee our British friends can shed some 
light on the Land Rover-Rover cars ownership issue.>
