I have mixed emotions about my ex landy...
it was a 1967 109 x Army dressed out in drab green, it road harder than a Russian Madam in dire need of a quick ruble, it had the turning circle of a three legged ferrule hog Lord only knows how the British maintained an empire with it.
With fondness I named it Alvin the Saracen due to its battle history with me! not its previous life.. I drove home from the pub one night turned into the drive and drove through the brand new shed and ended up in the kitchen,, out the door i went for a week, she got her brother to drag the landy off the fridge.
I had gearbox problems for yonks, i stuffed 3lbs of saw-dust down the filler hole and it was by virtue a miracle how that knocking just stopped, six months later the core plugs popped, six times that lump came out for me to weld the crack right where the plug was seated, i cursed it, i often wondered why they put the plug in the lump in the first place considering it didn't work i now know its for casting.
Any-who... best of luck with yours..
