Geoff, I couldn't care less about Mrs. Ritchie wood chopping. It was the blurred image of the Land Rover that drew my attention to the article.

I reckon they went bust. I was on the Series 1 forum and there was not a good word for Ashtree. Shoddy workmanship, items not being returned, even a member from New Zealand had problems with them. The ...

I tried to find out anything about the directors of Ashtree but the same response as when I tried to access the company website so Ashtree is definitely no more.

On page 38 of today's (August 22nd) Daily Mail is a photo of Guy Ritchie's wife, a former model, chopping wood. In the background is an open top Land Rover. It's not very clear and the registration nu ...

There’s a new range of leccy vehicles from VW. They all look bland and like bubbles on wheels.
No change there then Rich. Everything looks the same nowadays, ugly and blobby. I didn't know that scrap ...

I've never driven a ship or submarine. The nearest was a boat on the Cambridgeshire Fens and that had a Morris Minor engine, adapted for boat usage.
It's National Dog Day on 26th August. Hopefully I' ...

Having been on several forums for other Land Rover clubs, back to 2016 there were complaints about the quality of Ashtree bulkheads and the lack of communication. It appears they've gone under. I rang ...

It won't be done until next summer Rich. You can inspect it October 2020.
As for posting photos on this site I haven't a clue how to do it. Please don't tell me how it's done because I won't understa ...

I've driven a couple of turbocharged diesel engine vans where there was a problem with the turbo.
Absolutely gutless without it.

I'll have a Robert Owen bulkhead. I've seen their bulkhead fitted to a local member's Land Rover and they're very good.
Tried phoning Ashtree again, straight to ansaphone.

I can remember the good old days when Downton Engineering could get that power out of the crude BMC A Series engine without turbochargers and it was still driveable in traffic.
When the proper Mini w ...

I didn't mention that either Geoff.
I suspect I'll be drummed out of the MG Car Club for heresy. There a still diehards who support the nasty Chinese junk just because it wears an MG badge. There's o ...
