There’s a slight change in my job title this month: I’ve lost the ‘acting’ bit – which is just as well, as I’m not a very good actor!
Our picture above is inspired by Ian Arthur’s tale on p112; he would sit on the tailgate of his grandad’s Range Rover eating fish and chips. He’s restored the Classic, but retained its character. Ian’s Range Rover is a fantastic example of a vehicle that might have been scrapped just a few years ago, but was well worth saving, even without the family connections. Land Rovers do tend to become part of the family.
If you’re thinking of bolstering your Land Rover family, check out Mark Saville’s ‘Bag a Bargain’ feature on page 39 and grab yourself a ‘new’ Land Rover – you’ll have summer to savour it and autumn to prep it for winter. Enjoy the issue!
