1985 Land Rover Defender Review
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.
