You are definitely wrong. ;-) Ha! Just kidding. It's just my opinion. But the older blocks were arguably better and the Gems and Lucas ran cooler. I'd steer clear of the plumber's nightmare Bosch motronic. Stay with the Gems pre '99! Unless you find a Callaway which is still Gems, but a '99 (for all intents a one of a kind/one year only blown Gems!) otherwise it's a '98.Thanks for your input. I have had 2 LWBs and liked them more than the 1 P38 I had. I have been looking for a 2000+ P38, rather than the pre-2000, as it was my understanding that the later years were better sorted. Am I wrong about that? Thanks again.
The L322 have aged IMO and just seem soft and too forgiving. They're like a hot blonde that just lays there. For me a clean original Classic or a P38 has 100x more character and more fun to ride.Take a L322. Prices are getting low on these and just any L322 is better then the best P38.
Within a year you will have spend more money on a P38 anyway.
Hmmm, a SWB classic is great for around town, but I find the fan noise for the ac/heat very annoying in weather severe enough to require a fan speed above the "1" setting. Fan noise is vastly improved with the major changes the last classic year or two ("Gems"?). Lots of extras on the interior that break...no source that I can find for even so much as replacing the seat covers. If the cruise control is fried, you may have a hard time replacing. Boost wheels make a nice upgrade: Land Rover Specialist RR CLASSIC - Project Range Rover ClassicI will be using the truck for more driving around town and getting through the New England winter.
