Briggs, what's going on out there? Where's the rest of your stable? Aren't those just the trucks that aren't out grazing in the pasture? And don't you believe in garages for open vehicles? I'll bet the dogs have their own houses! ;-) jk.

Your chopped classic looks like fun and an S1 little brother would fit right in next to your 109.

Yeah - drove mine again this morning.... Can't sell this thing. I'd be stupid to do it - looks good, drives well, has somewhat modern comfort with the updated interior, is fun as hell and has a timeless look that so ugly it's beautiful. What's not to love?

As I deliver a boat out on the water right now I have time to contemplate my choices and selling the RRC would be a mistake.

I'd highly recommend an RRC to anyone. Ha

Cheers
Doug

Yeah...agreed on the RRC, from time to time I've thought I like my RRC as much or more than the D90. Sadly for me it's going to my son now...I had to make room for an addition.

Agreed. First time I drove my LWB I couldn't help but realize a feeling of being part of the gentry! I had always wanted that classic look. Grew up wanting the D, and of course the "new Range Rover" P-38, but just because it was new back then. After having gotten it, ho hum. Been there, done that. Give it to the wife ;-) "not the D of course! Night and day to the RRC, but equal, albeit different, love and enjoyment.

Yet I just can't get over the feeling of driving the classic, even if it doesn't have an sbc! I catch myself in a window and forget it's me. It's cool looking like you've had it all along! But I have to remember to " act like you've been there before!" ;-)

Just picked up a 95 Epsom Green LWB with 48K original miles. Needs a new upper tailgate but otherwise as rust free as I've ever seen. Has perfect leather, even the driver seat doesn't look sat in.

It was originally from SC and second owner brought it up to Richmond. Garaged for 15 years last 5 outside unused. Some expected electrical quirks, and needs the hood and roof repainted. Thinking of painting the roof an off white cream color.

I think that would look nice! Very old school Land Rover! Custom for sure, but good looking nonetheless.

To be rust free in that part of the country, it's definitely never seen a winter, well at least a winter road, as you said it lived outside the last 5 years. Good find!

I want to paint mine too.

The 66 Cooper S needs its roof done too and I plan to prep the RRC at the same time. It will help keep the dogs cool inside too.

Wow... thats very tempting.. Having said that Timm and I talked about doing Rubicon and it would be worth shipping it out there for that. Good to know you have room for it

And Yes Doug you should keep your RRC... i probably couldn't resist the temptation if you decided to sell and can't think of a truck id like to get rid of right now.

It was a low miles Southern green LWB; stored in a garage for years after Campbell died... --- i shoulda bought it but I'd be in trouble if another RRC showed up in my driveway.
I'm just glad Fred got it!
