Gallery - Reader's Land Rover in action

 

From Car and Driver magazine, September 1964:

"A Land Rover is at once a delightful runabout and a rolling torture chamber. It combines the best and worst features of a truck with the insouciance of an MG-TC (insouciance - French noun, characteristics that entice or charm one into unsuspected trouble). It is a car that every man feels compelled to buy at one time or another, but hardly anybody has a use for. It is best suited to off-the-road cross-country adventure. Conversely it is not specifically useful for shopping trips, or general family-household use, but that's what people do with it. This is one of several instances where perfectly reasonable people have seemed to take leave of their senses on first meeting the Land Rover. It is less of a car than a state of mind. Its owners are the most partisan group imaginable and its would-be owners are legion."

There are pictures of Series Land Rovers doing what Series Land Rovers do best, submitted by their owners.

2011 update on Readers Rigs photos

The pictures on this page are from the late 1990's and early 2000's. Fom back in the days when us country folks were still on 2400 baud phone modems and jpegs took forever to load. So they are all low rez small photos.
After a heitus of at least half a decade the readers rigs section is once again active for people who would like to share pictures of your Defender or Series Land Rover. 
When you finish looking at the version 1 photos, you can see the version 2 Land Rover reader rig photos.
