You are correct I forgot it was stretched or shortened depending on how you look at it. Is it your truck?

I loved that truck back then. It had the greatest paint job ever.

What's the deal with "schoolhouse gardens" on the door? Always wondered.

Cool thread, all these rigs are inspiration.

The property that Timm's parents owned near Medford was an old orchard. The original name of the orchard dating back 100 years or so was 'Schoolhouse Gardens'.

Glad to see it's progressing well. He told me about that series 1 last year. Is that an old FJ-40 roll bar on there?

I doubt it. Timm is such a Rover purist that he'd never mix'n'match his parts.

Is he building it for a guy that owns a Scuba shop in Venice? I know he was waiting on one of Timms builds with serious horsepower.

It doesn't appear so based on this. Was wondering how he would get 500hp without mixing and matching something.

Would love to see more pics.

Wondering how you STOP 500HP without doing some mixing and matching in the brake department...

I was lucky enough to go for a ride in this rig! Holy %^&*! I though the front end was going to come off the ground getting on the frwy. This thing is fantastic.

Yes! I suggested an "OH JESUS!" bar on the dash for the passenger but I dont think he liked my idea.

I'm pretty sure Timm is squeezing that 500hp through the Rover 2.25. He's not the type that would defile his LR with Chevy parts.

Jeff,
Do you know what he used for differentials? Curious if he beefed the rover internals or did a toyota swap.

Would love to see more pics if you have them. Always enjoy seeing Timm's rigs.
