Ex Military Landrover Series 2 — not fast but but will run at 70 all day long. brakes are not bad and the handling isnt overly bad for a 40 year old car (its just like driving a truck in the old black and white movies lots of movement in the steering). no major repairs just basic maitainence and serviceing, cannot say about squeeks and rattles as you cannot hear anything over the wind when driving (also it hurts when you get hit in the face by a bee) styled by the army in typical squadie fasion ie lots of thick paint and trimmed with cammo and equipment (gpmg is a must though) cheep to run got from birmingham to seven oaks in kent on 3/4 of a tank £25 ish £65 year to insure and cheep to fix this is awesome to drive and turns more heads than any other vehicle ive ever been in

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fun to drive and cheep to run

Cons: rain and insects

V8 Series Ii — It was fitted with a Rover V8, so performance was better than adequate!! Build quality better than mid '70's Rovers (had a few of them), still had original chasssis at 35 years old. Parts were cheap as, only high running cost was the 5 to 20 mpg (depending on if off roadin gor not).

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Soft top, roof off in the summer.  Engine noise- gorgeous!!

Cons: Nothing

Landrover Series 2a 109 1970 — best pick up you could ever want ! cheap to run being diesel, holds loads of stuff in the back because its the 109 lwb, 3 seats in the cab, holds loads of weight with its leaf springs, 1970 so tax exempt, cheap to insure, parts are also very cheap and there are loads available, also this one is a ex-army so has heavy duty parts on it. also i can get in to classic car shows free.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: holds loads of stuff and saves money !

Cons: nothing
