Sorry Gary, don't have a freelander. Neighour does, glossy back sport model, but doesn't seem keen to bring it out to play ;)

Well at least someone looks at the page :D

Maybe if you acted as a sponsor (ie a recovery vehicle) and took him out he might play. I don't have anyone to play with so I have to take my Disco out first to check the lie of the land before I go out and play with myself in my Freelander - mmmm :P - that didn't come out right - what I meant to say was - well you get the drift :D

well Blippie, that looks like fun....

do you use yours as an everyday runaround too or is it a weekend toy.

it'd be interesting to know if you can punish a car like that and still have it be reliable on a day to day basis, use it the way it was designed for not just for towing a horse trailer :-)....

there are three LR's a work that i know of that do the weekend off road thing, a 110 and two disco's but i've not had a chance to speak to them in detail.

jules

looking at your signature pic i'd say that one definitely has a hard time :-)

Both do

Victoria won the British off road championship trophy class last year in hers which is my old 1.8

The td4 in the pic (me) won the super production class British off road championship last year.

we are both out again competing at the southwest shot out later this month

sold it as it was becoming a pain in the Ass

warning lights/tyres scrubbing/split intercooler hoses/broken sunroof

far to flimsy for us and I for one was glad to see the back of it after 16months of owning one.

you two comedians are just too much :)

the 90 is sorted the POS Frelander is gone to pastures new.

stupid electrical problems

broken sunroof

water leaks

turbo pipes split all add up to a fed up owner so it went.

and coming from

someone who backflipped his last 90 that is a bit much :)

PS the CV search ended a long while ago when I got the Ashcroft preproduction ones, prop ok once a bespoke one was made.
