show in what ever other vehicle you may have, many of us do...Ed Kang and I show up in
hondas, other guys show with other brands.
part of the land rover experience is realizing that the vehicle will be useless when you need it the most.. eventually all of us show our rovers at least once...

NoVa Happy Hour - 3rd Thurs Monthly

As Jeremy Clarkson put it, "the most unreliable car in the world is the most reliable car in the world" but yes, we all have been stranded by our Rovers at least once...

I was about to say actually I haven't...but there was one time in GWNF when I grenaded my clutch and had to take the tow truck home. That was 11 years ago of course. I have found when you actually need them, i.e. daily drive, they respond with loyalty.

And as an early head's up, I may make Dec's if the timing for everything works out-so prepare thyself old crew!

Great news. If the planets don't completely align post up what might work and we'll pull together a impromptu drinking session somewhere.

It would be interesting to forecast what the appreciation would need to be to cover ownership costs, insurance, storage fees and pull a reasonable ROI.
