My Landy, My Love. — Its old, its slow, its a fuel guzzler, but its a landy! It has power steering so she turns fine, shes slow off the lights but solid on the stop. It has all the squeeks and rattles of an old car, but the landy is far more than a car, its a status symbol, a talisman of the British ideal. Solid, dependable and enduring. So what it costs a bomb to refuel! So what its brown and moves just faster than a lorry. Its a blast to drive, amazing to own and the envy of all who see it.

Pros: Powerful, loud and British

Cons: Expensive, slow and old.

Farm vehicle. Does the job. Need a ladder to get in it. The steering wheel is so big that once I've moved the seat forward in order that I can reach the pedals - things become a bit squashed! Avoid... Read More
