I en­joyed the ar­ti­cle about the Big Rig by Gary Pusey. I would like to see the rig up and run­ning, though now that the owner of the rig, Nene Over­land, has gone into liq­ui­da­tion, I won­der if it will be saved to live an­other day?

I am not so sure I would like to drive over it, but would very much like to see it be­ing used for what it was orig­i­nally de­signed for.

I am the owner of a 1999 V-reg­is­tra­tion Free­lander XDI three-door with four seats which does not have ABS, HDC or ETC, as these were a £995 op­tional ex­tra at that time, so it is pos­si­bly one of the last Free­landers built with­out those trac­tion aids that were to be­come stan­dard. David Bell (via email) If your Free­lander hasn’t got Hill De­scent Con­trol (HDC) or Elec­tronic Trac­tion Con­trol (ETC) I def­i­nitely wouldn’t rec­om­mend you tack­ling Big Rig… nor the icy hills men­tioned by Alan Mor­ley (left)! – Ed.
