Is that in your current place Mal or at a friends with all the cars about.

Must have been a few quid that. I know landies are pricey.

I'd love to but I have too much to do at the minute.

Definitely interested in that alloy from the other thread though.
Will you pass mine up or down?

I like the pic, Mal.

Is that part of the course at your local off-road circuit; the "Mountain Of Maestros"?

Looks challenging :D

Land Rovers are amazing, though. I read somewhere recently that they're so durable, something like 70% of Land Rovers built EVER are still road-going....Wow. I mean, that's since, what, 1948 or summit??!!

Nice Mal.
A very useful vehicle. It should do everything you want it to. I do like the double cab with pick up. I quite liked the Lara croft verion when they were released.

I see you will be at the barn on the 21st. Do you have any 800 parts that might be of use to me?

RJB102 was part of the collection held at the Army Museum of Transport at Beverly.

I thought it had been mothballed untill a new museum could be set up.

nice to see it out.

Will do mate, thanks.

A mate has a G plate V8 county and I know what that's worth let alone one as new as yours.
