sorry it's not a rib, but it was 30 years ago S1 towing Watch It Watchy up the pass from Beddgelert towards Capel Curig, with Snowdon in the background

I feel like an away team supporter sneaking into the home team stand to cause trouble but......

Attached a few pictures of some of the past LR's i've owned and the current one (last two pictures) which has actually proved incredibly reliable. In fact the last one is arguably the best 4x4 i've owned (and i've owned 7 in the last 10 years, 4 of them LR's )
This last bright red Land Rover has never let me down in 8 years of ownwrship, pulls like a freight train, works hard both on and off road on our farm, and is as comfortable inside as a modern familly saloon.

I gave up a long time ago worrying about axle articulation and departure angles as quite honestly, they dont mean feck-all....IMHO, probably 90% of LR owners will never actually need to know what those terms represent let alone be in a position to worry about them.....

And now.....

You are talking about an incident 30 to 40 years ago, and compared to most cars, all cars in that era were pretty crap!

So you certainly know how to hold a grudge against a product then!

As for the other comments about LR, where do you get your facts??
70% of jag production in China, yeah right......... what a load of Bo***cks!, the majority are built in the UK.

Landies have been built in the UK, and have had a very strong following for over 50 years, so when will the imposion happen? sounds like a very long slow burning one to me!
Don't listen to mister p he is just a wind up merchant if we did a survey on here there would probably be more with land rovers than not I know I chap that runs a fleet of 1200 cars in London from minis to Ferraris and he runs a Defender

Schools shut locally, 3" of snow on the roads. Just been for a drive in the Defender with Goodrich muds & also the ML with Avon Rangers. No issues with either vehicle, they're both capable of doing the school run but if I wanted to go down a rutted track the Landy wins, if I wanted to drive to London I'd go in the Merc........

The defender and the Cat belonged to a company i used to work for, had to drain the fuel out of the cat and empty it to get it under 3.5t

The 88 was mine, towbar front and back comes in handy some times...

yeh i know none of them are ribs but with the ribs i use that wouldn't be half as interesting..
