How Do You Get Away with Having Multiple Rovers?

Just wondering how you all get away with multiple rovers? It seems like rover people always have at least 2+. I know how I can justify it for myself. However, how do you explain this to neighbors, friends and the wife? Why isn't 1 enough?

Simple. Need to have 3 bc one to two are always down for maintenance.

I've always been able to drive a rover if 3 were on the property.

Have a few kids that like rovers too. Between my dad, brother and I, there are 3 in the driveway at home and one with me out at school. Write them off as "learning experiences" for them.

I took my wife to an event. Saw what they could actually do. She found my Disco on craigslist on the ride home. Problem Solved.

I don't have to justify myself to anyone. I'm not married and I don't owe my neighbors an explanation.
If I save enough money up, I'll be looking for a S3 109.

Diamond earrings do the trick. Ask Lavender.

My wife knows how much everything costs. Sometimes I think she would rather me play golf.

The first Rover was hers and she was not happy when I sold the Series IIA.

Start a Land Rover business.
Andrea doesn't really know if we're driving a customer's car, or one of "ours".
She doesn't care either but after seeing a picture of a friend's Pink Panther, she called it "cute".

Buying parts for a non existent truck is like screwing a fat chick....it's fine until your "friends" find out about it and publicly humiliate you.. And then you make it worse by saying...she's gonna go on a diet (my new truck is coming)...

Scooters are for men who would ride a real motorcycle but instead prefer to feel the wind on their vagina..
