1984 Land Rover Range RoverReview
Just An Excellent Machine — Great fun for off roading, I bought her on the cheap as a project to work on evenings. The soft spring rates and lack of anti-roll bars make it interesting to go round roundabouts to say the least. The three speed automatic is nigh indestructible but doesn't do much for the fuel economy. You can't get a better car to go shopping in! (provided the shop is not reachable by any decent road). Braking on slippery surfaces is a joke thanks to the lack of ABS and the weight of the car :-)
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Wonderful off road capabilities and plenty of boot space.
Cons: Zenith Stromberg carubrettors, I hate those things. Good reason to fit proper SU carbs and improve the performance and fuel economy.

I like that it never seems fazed by anything you throw at it. Snow? not a problem. Ice? no worries. Muddy Grass? don't worry about it. I even suspect the car to have 'self-healing' properties. I went ... Read More
