That's an old Series 111 Landy, 30 years old perhaps, so how old was the
Toymota?

Re: Bloody LandRovers

it's the driver....
in 1999 i wnt to a dutch meeting, in front of me was a rangerover with
front and rear steer, 4.4 V8 engine and big nobby tyre's.
i drove a standart 4cyl diesel 109 serie's 2 (my firsty landy, and stil
got her)
the range got stuck, i drove trough it.
so it is not the equipment, it's all about tyre's and drivers.
greets,
the wacky dutch man

Diesel's make life eassier, even in Holland.

Re: Bloody LandRovers

erik-jan,
the performance of a petrol and a diesel was in advantage of the V8,
if someone can't drive off-road, your doing nothing with the best
vehicle.
i am working in my spare time in a land-rover garage in north holland,
i have build with a few others a bobtailed 109 s3 diesel,
std engine and box (brit army recon)
he drove it in belgium, broke the left front leaf spring, and the right
rear one,
trashed the rearaxle, it came right off,
with ropes and bubblegum the repairs where done, he stil drove that
weekend, and stil did the stuff the jap's could not do.
if someone take the 101fc ambulance,
3.5 V8 low compression, bargrip tyre's...
it's big, top heavy and i stil drive it off-the road, like the billing
quarry course, with better result than other land-rovers.
knowing your vehicle is a big plus,
diesel is better in water,
petrol is better on the road.
if you can't drive, a suzuki is the best option for you.
greets,
Arjan

mind, I wouldn't knock the little suzukis, especially the early ones. Very
light, compared to a landy, which gives 'em an advantage on soft ground.
