Land Rover: Best and Worst car...

Land Rover: Best and Worst car
At least in my opinion...


I ran across this photo of my old Land Rover parked in our son's driveway in Bel Air. This is a car I had a love/hate relationship with. The love part I still feel any time I see a similarly-designed Land Rover. This style is romantic by nature, and owners of these cars usually have a bag for each season packed, and ready to go. The newer Land Rovers just look like car-cars to me.

The hate part comes from it eating a hole in my wallet. It was always in the shop, mostly for oil leaks. One Land Rover dealer finally told me all Land Rovers leaked. What? Anyway, I finally sold the car that, ever time I got into, made me feel like an adventure was straight ahead. Many times it was, and many times it was just another trip to the repair shop.

It looks like a vehicle that could take on any terrain. I imagine most of your memories with the Rover are great ones. I love white vehicles. My present one is white. Easier to keep clean!

Some adventures are just not fun trips

I've always wanted a land rover - even the name sounds like an adventure waiting.... I enjoyed Jackie's comment... no car, no matter the color gets less dirt on it. but if you love a color than you love the color.

Ginger: advenderous,, yes, but you gotta pay to play, and when you buy a used car, you'd better buy one that you can afford a mechanic for.
