Should grab a p38 to acquire the 3rd gen of each rover design

Really Zach? I'm all excited about having all 3 running and driveable and you want to introduce a wildcard? Hmmm........

Just how I like it. One for each occasion.
The LR4 for the opera and fine dining.
The Classic for off road.
And the Series for toddling around town and going to the pub or tavern in.

I think each has it's strengths off-road: the LR3 electronically "locked", the RR pnuematically locked, and the S3 just un-locked, but climbs like a billy goat.

I'm fortunate that I get to drive a huge variety of Land Rover combinations- I try to be thorough and test drive a proper distance after I finish the work- and sometimes my cars don't get driven for days/weeks. I'd be hard-pressed to pick just one.....

No doubt.
I've taken the Westie off road only once. In stock trim, if exceeds the capabilities of my Disco 1.
But the Disco is better prepped with winch, underside armor, and AT tires.

15 birds to choose from, but the roosters are the loudest, so they are at the top of the list. Nothing I enjoy more than being on the phone with a customer and have one of the 2 bantams stretch up tall and let it out as loud as he can right next to my desk.

I'm pretty sure all of those are in the scrapyard where they belong, right next to the Freelanders.
