Solid Easy Going Workhorse — Fantastic truck! Beautfiul in its own way, true english heritage, BAGS of character, performance not so good! Expensive to run, drinks fuel but cheap to insure. The car is VERY fun to drive! Its good to keep an old car going!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: characteristic car

Cons: Speed, costs, performance

The Landy Siii — the old series three has a lot of grunt but not much acceleration, and with 4 wheel drum brakes thats probably a good thing, we bought her for $2700 and shes actually fairly expensive to rune and maintain. it drinks fuel like theres no tomorrow and she still takes the old upper cylinder lubricant, altought we now have an injector fitted to administer the old girls meds. shes a great 4x4 but not the best long distance runner. she'll go anywhere just not fast! OH and as for appearnace it looks like a great big green ex-army shipping container on wheels. very fun to drive though.

Pros: she'll go anywhere with a bit of skill

Cons: she just wont get there very fast
