Newbie Introduction

Hi all,

Brief introduction - grew up with Land Rovers in one form or another and managed to get my first one just over three years ago. It was a bog standard 1987 90 truck cab, 2.5TD. 1 Owner from new, fresh from the farmers field. Typically, it ate a fair amount of money until it ended up like this:

However, along came a baby and so it was back to sensibleness for me :(

A year or so later, I had to get another hit and decided to return to Land Rover with something a tad more 'sensible'. 1989 Range Rover Vogue SE.

Picture quite happily taking a piddle on my drive! Of course, nothing more sinister than air con condensation that time I think.

Cue several hundred pounds maintenance and the continued drop of MPG (8mpg in the end) forced its sale. Back to normal cars.

But yes, 2 years on and I'm back on the hunt again. A shorter commute to work and a bigger son suggests it might be more favourable this time! I'm after a 90 (or decent 110), any engine up to around 3k. That and of course, encouragement that Land Rovers and toddlers do mix!

See you all soon!

Dom

don't think the other half will complain... it's a modern family if you know what I mean ;)

I'm pretty sure he'll like it. Plays with his matchbox 90 more than his other cars, although does have a nasty habit of removing the tyres from his discovery. Let's hope he grows out of this.

Thanks for the encouragement :)
