Geoff I think you need this for your garage:

No, I don't. So much crap on Amazon. Says it's 'humorous'- Trade Descriptions Act? The only thing that's funny about it is that some moron thinks they'll make any money out of it. And they can't even spell 'erratic'. Pathetic - sorry, sp, that's not aimed at you but the originator of this product has clearly never been near anything or anyone genuinely into Landies. Just my opinion - I could be wrong, but I hope/like to think not.

150% in agreement. Some moron will buy it though.

For the last couple of days there has been an 'F' reg Blue 90 on the next door neighbours drive. Unfortunately I haven't seen the neighbour to interrogate, sorry, I meant ask, what it's doing there.

You never know your luck Paul. You could have a Land Rover fan for a neighbour.

and I can always liberate spares for Henry if it is there for any length of time. The neighbours lad generally dumps a car on their drive for a few months, does nothing with it, then it disappears again.

I recycle trees - as firewood. I don't know whether St Greta would approve - I haven't bothered to ask her.

When I was looking to buy the 90, Mrs K specifically said not to buy a “big” Land Rover. I believe she meant a 110...


I was reading this month's Classic Land Rover at the kitchen table this evening and there's an article in it about this:

https://www.landrovercentre.com/product/c319eme/

I happened to mention that it was for sale ... Smile

I think the word 'outrage' more or less covers it Laughing

JCB are cutting the working week from 39 to 34 hours because of a shortage of components from China. Why are we so reliant on this cheap and nasty rubbish which expires 1 second after the warranty has expired (if you're lucky)?. We should be making our own components, not relying on cheap rubbish from halfway across the world! This country used to do all that, Villiers was an example, but when the cheap far east rubbish started inundating us, we just gave up instead of fighting against it.
There is still a choice with Land Rover spares but virtually all MG spares are cheap and nasty far east rubbish

Some Landy parts fall into the same territory Alan. It’s sourcing their parts from the cheapest but not the best supplier.

Agreed Rich. I know the suppliers that do so and get my parts elsewhere. "Buy cheap, pay dear!"

Watching Beast on Film 4. There’s a very tidy early 90 station wagon on it. Smile

Sitting in the pub enjoying a pint of Swing Low. To their annoyance I left the dogs at home because of the rain and wind that was increasing and went to the pub by bus. Weekdays there are 4 buses an hour to the pub, 1 an hour Sundays.
