BAG A £5000 BARGAIN
There’s never been a better time to treat yourself to a great Land Rover at a budget price
Hnow the Land Rover market has changed over the last decade! Where once there was very little choice for the would-be owner with a £5000 budget, now there is an almost bewildering range available. To help you choose what’s best for you – and what to avoid – in this issue we’re publishing a special 12-page guide to the five-grand bargains. It starts on page 44.
Also in this issue is the first of a new series by Graham Nash, a lifelong Land Rover fan who worked at the Lode Lane factory from the late 1950s through to the early 1970s. His Solihull Memories bring alive in a very real way many of the historic events and key players from that golden era. His revelations are sure to rewrite a few history books, too. Don’t miss the first installment, which begins on page 86.
Another Land Rover that played its part in recent history is the remarkable bullet-riddled Defender used to transport CNN correspondents during the Balkans War and nicknamed the ‘Pizza Truck’. Now fully restored, we’ve been to photograph it and unearth its remarkable story. Read all about in on page 56.
Mind you, you don’t have to play a major role in history to grace the pages of LRM. Teenager Dan Cleveland’s Series III is nothing out of the ordinary, but his lifestyle and love of classic engineering is nothing short of remarkble. You’ll find him on page 96.
Of course there’s much,much more in this month’s LRM. I hope you enjoy it all – and, as always, happy Land Rovering.
