I was told this was a serious land rover site? All I have heard so far is initiation ceremonies, goats and confirmation about local temps? Most LR sites usely start with a hearty welcome, and then some serious banter about what we are all here for Land Rovers?

Welcome! So, how comfortable are you in your D-90 in all that cold? I tell would-be passengers that my '94 D-90 has "Climate Control" - whatever the climate is doing controls how the cab feels.

You'll find lots of stories about peoples' experiences with their trucks if you search the forum. We're always eager to hear more. I've been living in Land Rovers for decades and love 'em, even if they frustrate the tar out of me sometimes; but then, that keeps life from being boring.

Don't worry about us, we are only joking about the goat. Usually we start out a good thread by bitching about something that broke and then we go back and forth about how to fix it. Anyway, welcome to the forum, when did you become a LR enthusiast? It started for me about 1993, when I saw a D90 for the first time in the US at the local dealership. After that, I know I had to have one.


Also, if you click the active topics button you will see what everyone is discussing at the moment.

Well I come from good old Blighty, so have grown up with Land Rovers all around me. This one is my first that I have owned though. She is a Defender 110 CSW 1994 200Tdi. 143000 miles on the clock, and runs like a dream.

The main reason I bought her is for the start of my new business running Land Rover tours in Transylvania. Land Rover as you know will be perfect for such a job.

If any of you are contemplating a 4x4 tour to Transylvania I have set up the enclosed forum to answer questions and stimulate some debate.

Says who? Seriously, let's get the goat, a feather duster, and quart of axle grease! (or did the rules change after I came onboard, and someone forgot to send me the memo?)

So your a spammer? I'm sorry a serious spammer. If you don't have a sense of humor you won't be into Land Rovers for very long. The Toyota guys seem to take themselves to seriously. Maybe that would better suit you.

Defend yourselve.

Have you ever seen a real vampire? Six Stud style. If you know what I'm talking about I'll leave you alone.

Six ----stud Vampire is a part of Land rover heritage. I would think residents of an old world country like Translvania would be into heritage.

Maybe you guys should run one of these six stud --- Vampires in your 4x4 tours. Another clue.

Not even guessing.

Some Irish chap that writes a fantasy from his dining room about the North of England and Transylvania does not equate to Transylvanian heritage.

Many Transylvania locals have never even heard about vampires, Dracula and things that go bump in the night.

Here you go for the google challenged individuals:


http://209.85.165.104/search?q=cache...&client=safari


Forward Control 101

"Vampire" Radio Body (Approx. 20 made, body by Marshall's of Cambridge).
The Vampire acronym means: Vehicle Army Mobile Position Interferometry Radio Equipment.
The vehicle's purpose was to identify the origin of radio signals.
Teams of 3 Vampires would erect their antennas in different remote locations and then use a method of radio triangulation to locate signal sources.
The Vampires could also operate individually by setting up additional antennas some distance away that were carried in a specialized Sankey Trailer.
