My name is Howard
I have been a member of the club for a some years but have not got around to the forum before now.
I have a 1979 Series 3 SWB diesel called Clifton which I have had for 22 or so years now but it has spent most of its life in my Friends Barn awaiting me to wake up and get on with it.
I had to bring it home a few years ago and that spurred me on to the point where the end is in sight.
I am hoping I will be able to use the forum to solicit opinions on some topics to help with my decision making I will post topics as the arise.

Welcome Howard.
I've read your exploits with Clifton so you'll have to keep us updated now.
Always remember that on this forum no question is ever deemed to be a stupid one,ask.away and there is bound to be someone who'll know the answer.

Hi Howard,

Welcome to the club and forum!

Keep us updated on the landy’s progress. We like pics too, if you can upload a few. Very Happy

As Alan has said, there’s lots of help and advice on here, just ask away.

Thanks Guys for the warm welcome. I have plenty of experience and pics to share as well as loads for us to debate. The Journey has been a long one so forgive me if its slow but as Alan said I have been writing about Clifton in the club mag so I will try not to get ahead of myself.
Thanks again Rgds Howard

Not so bad over in Redditch I always seem to get lost when I visit. Leigh Sinton is nice I used to visit a pub there quite a lot when I was younger.

Hello Howard

Welcome to the forum.

Good to see there is another classical scholar amongst our number. I always think that 'spe, labore, fide' suits Landy ownership.

Pip, pip

Hi Geoff
Thanks for the welcome
I seem to periodically loose the faith and then regain it.
Its been quite a long Journey but the end is in sight.
