EDI­TOR’S WEL­COME

LRO (UK) - - Contents -

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!

EDI­TOR ● Neil bought his first Land Rover in 1988 and has owned nu­mer­ous since. He’s driven a huge num­ber of the UK’S greenlanes, al­most ev­ery Land Rover model and com­petes in a wide range of mo­tor­sport. Ve­hi­cles owned: 1969 88-inch Se­ries IIA, 1979 Light­weight, 1998 300Tdi De­fender 110
