Turns As Many Heads As Most Sports Cars.. But With Apprecation Rather Than Envy!! — Hard core motoring in your own 4x4 'kit' car! If you don't like it, take it to bits and build it up another way! I can be anything you want but be realistic when it comes to comfort...this is basically a 1958 car...and it wasn't that modern then!!

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

Pros: Easy to work on and easy to fix, cheap parts, no problem that hasn't been seen before!

Cons: Quite thirsty, noisy and draughty!

The Best 4x4xfar — *Performance - like an oil tanker(the ship variety) *Build Quality - Variable *Appearance - Perfect *Cost of ownership - Immeasurably high (will never stop paying) *Fun Factor- Be serious! still smiling at the memory of it. Very sad that it had to be 'put to sleep' but it was very old and very, very sick.

Pros: It contained its own micro climate and it often rained inside when it was dry outside.

Cons: It contained its own micro climate and it often rained inside when it was dry outside,

Its 30 Years Old And Will Still Be Running In Another 30 Years Time. — Its old and in a diffrent world to todays new moden cars. My Landy is now going up in value instead of down like most cars of today. Its also very usefull around the farm. Grate fun to go off roading in and you can fix it with a big hamer. Its also the only one like it so if you see it you know its mine.

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

Pros: Big smile on face when I'm in my Landy.

Cons: 18mpg

Ex-mod By Amy
