The Stage 1 is an SIII 109, on leaf springs.

They used a friend's photos and did not give credit

Thanks for the positive comments.

The photos chosen was kind of a weird thing. I sent in a mess of photos that I took that they did not like due to their low-res. I asked Dixon Kenner to send in some of his (mega hi-res) from the Winter Romp (the ones of my truck in the water hole) and Dixon sent his directly to RN. Thompson from Rovers North said he found some others on the RN Forum that he wanted to use and he would just use those. A lot of the other photos are from old Land Rover sales literature.

yeah, the water hole winter romp shots. According to D the subject of credit did come up and was advised he would get it. But, they dropped the ball. Lame, especially when many other photos in there are credited.

Otherwise, nice article.
