My dad brought his first LandRover (A Series2) when I was 6months old and now at 20 not only do we still have it I am hooked on the whole LandRover thing (much to the disgust of several previous girlfriends...)
As soon as I passed my test I realised that I had to get rid of the Fiat Uno I was driving as it kept getting stuck off road! I brought a Suzuki as I couldnt afford a LR, and althoug it was excellnt offroad I needed something with a little more grunt! I brought my Series2 and for about 6 or 7 months it ran well but then decided it would prefer to run on oil instead of petrol! Sadly this ment its retirement from active service as I didnt have the money, expertise or stamina to restore it!
My current LR is a 200Tdi 90 (A big step I know!) which I have to say is brilliant. It is a soft top at the mo but I have plans to swap it for a hard top soon. It has the usual underbody protection, tree sliders, and I am running it on 255/85/16 BFG Muds which I have to say seem to work almost as good as my Grizzly Claws!!
