Great Head Turning Vintage Rover That Gets A Lot Of Attention — Performance - acceleration, braking and handling are all above average for this historic Land Rover. Appearance - Great condition, paint job looks strong, Interior seat cushion torn but can easily be fixed. The Fun factor is top knotch with this sweet 1971 Land Rover Series III.

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

Pros: Great looking Historic Vehicle that runs good.

Cons: Seat cushions torn, rust on spare tire

Best Off Roader Ever — It is the best vehicle i have ever owned there was nothing it wouldnt go through and you could abuse the crap out of it and it still ran great and it got like 30 mpg with the diesel engine while on pavement and we wont get into the pitiful off road milage but its still not horrible given the price of diesel

Pros: coverd in mud will go through anything diesel engine

Cons: cost of diesel

Landrover Series 3 — More fun than you can shake a big stick at, bash it crash it, turn it over get it stuck in 3' of mud and it still keeps coming back for more. The rides distinctive, performance is not quite in the supercar league but you really can't beat them, cold and draughty in the winter, fantastic in the summer, dirt cheap to insure, no tax. Parts are pennies

Pros: more than I can count

Cons: I'm biased

cheap to insure
tax free
fun to drive
goes anywhere
makes people smile

Cons: wouldn't want to drive it long distance
you need to fix it - frequently
fuel economy
