EBay mileage indicator suggested that it would be a drive of 130 miles to go and get my newly acquired Land Rover. I asked my friend if he would take me in his car to pick it up, he said yes so on the Friday afternoon, using a map book , off we went, 170 miles later we arrived at the address given! I guess EBay mileage is as the crow flies. Anyway we made it and there it stood, a fairly sound but dirty looking Lightweight Land Rover. It started OK and wasn’t full of holes, although the door tops were very wobbly and full of moss in the grooves, which meant the windows did not open very easily. “Have you ever driven one of these before?” asked the seller. “No” I replied, but I have an SJ410 so it can’t much different to that can it? I paid my money, filled in the paperwork and off we set to go home. First stop was the petrol station! Very strange this filling up under the seats! Job done we then set off in the rush hour traffic, in the dark.
