Such blasphemy (stating the holy defender being a piece of shit) can only be expected from "hipster" garbage.

It may be a piece of shit, but in 20 years we'll see what's still out there on the roads and trails...

It's a very trump-esque angle.. say crazy shit to get attention. and call normal people hipsters.

No worries I understand I have owned a number of classic rangies and p38's and happen to be a Rover mechanic of nearly 20 yrs experience. ...I'm just being sarcastic.. I hate seeing a Rover put to pasture or sitting in a junkyard, never mind the thought of selling mine.
I'm attached to that thing as if it was my conjoined twin.
It may be slow but it takes me places a sports car never will.
