Mini Road Legal Tractor That Leaks And Squeaks — If you have lots of time, a little dosh and can beg/borrow/steal a welder then they can be urm, whats the word, a nice little project. Look around for a sound one, and they are the best value to get you into the weird and wonderful world of all things Land Rover.

Pros: Characteristic, great in the mud - wouldn't swap it though, oh and good for shutting gates with.
Will get you instant looks on the driven shoot day.

Cons: Bumpy ride, Free Shower when driving in the rain, candle like headlight beam, like to rust, lumpy and bumpy. Won't find a straight one.
