Series 3 must have been 70's then, or early 80's.

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!

Have a look at this 300 tdi with mud terrain on we went through a 2' drift 200 yds long it was superb

I watched that Mick. I preferred my 300 to my current TD5 for low down grunt. The Goodrich muds make so much difference with the deep stuff but I still got in a 4 wheel slide on the packed stuff at 7-45am. Awesome vehicle for work but basic trim & comfort levels make it impractical for the longer journeys with the familiy towing the boat.

Different beast to my very basic work model! I liked the old 2 door Range Rovers with the plastic seats & floor mats too when they first came out !!
Sadly mine smells of dogs,deer,rabbits & cigars but the kids love it when I let them drive it around the local off-road course.....
