I have a '71 series 3 and have owned a long line of them before this one. Including two 80", a series 2 109, a v8 series 2 SWB, a range rover pick up truck, two SWB series 3, a disco 2, and a 109 series 3 10 seater. As a mate of mine once commented that Land Rover ownership is a bit like having Herpes - once you have are infected you can never get rid of it !!!!
My current LR is just used as a toy and only comes out on a few days in a year, but I do use it in off road competitions. It has evolved a bit over the years and now has a galvanised chassis, parabolic springs, 2.5 litre petrol engine (as opposed to a 2.25), twin batteries, winch, compressor, overdrive etc etc etc
