Here's one of our "new" Rover. The photo was taken today, fresh from Discount tire with its new tires and two-day old coil-spring conversion.
1995 Range Rover Classic SWB TWR Edition.

Thanks Mike, Rachel and I are really pleased with it.

From the Land Rover FAQ:
Quote:
"Brooklands/TWR:
The body-styling kit designed by Tom Walkenshaw Racing (TWR) that was first introduced on the Brooklands model in '91 was featured in the U.S. brochure for the first time (for the '95 SWB model). County Classics with this kit were sold in Epsom Green and Beluga Black.
The kit looks good, but would be destroyed by any real off-roading. For now it's my wife's daily driver, but once we're ready to start wheeling it, all that plastic will come off in favor of new bumpers and rock sliders.

Regards,

New to me...

Just had to add a pic. New to me 95 D90. I have had her paint massaged and redid the interior. She is basically stock now and will start to morph.

I would love to but I'm leading a trip for the Solihull this Sat. The last time I did HC was three years ago with Troy, Tis, and Tom Belecki. I'll try to run HC soon. When does it get snowed in?

Took Best in Class at the Texas All British Car Day this past weekend. Mine was the only Defender. The Rangies and Discos didn't have a chance.

Yeah, it's barely twisted but the people there were impressed. I didn't have room to bring bigger ramps.

Red face

This is one of my favorite pics, taken after about 28 hours on the SNIM Iron Ore train in Mauritania ("the longest train in the world"). It would be about a 3 day drive to get where we were going, so the train wasn't too bad. It was also the first (and only) time I've ever hired a whole railroad car myself! We surprisingly got a full 8 hours sleep in the front seats with sleeping bags, even if we were a little stiff in the morning. After we got off the train, we headed south into the desert, but that's a whole other story... A beautiful country is Mauritania.

Cheers,
Nick.

It's basically stock, but I'm a new owner and I'm modifying when I can. Most of what I've done is internal or under the drivetrain. It's the Black 90 on the Rover Snaps section of the latest Rovers North.
Oh, and I love it.
