We’ve all been there. If you haven’t, you will. You’ve been stopped dead by a failed part. In this case my friend JagGuy’s wife. JagGuy was absent from one of our weekly lunches, this time he missed out on a greasy cheeseburger from Tucker’s. He was waiting with his wife on the tow truck to arrive to haul one of their Discovery’s to his shoppe for a repair.
It was another hot Saturday in Central Oklahoma. The temperature made it to 102 F in Norman. Even with the temps as nasty as that we don’t stop work because we might get a little sticky and sweaty. We just turned on the fans and opened up the doors. The Evil German Dude had us[…]
Truck Yeah! ran a story today about the Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept. The Land Rover Discovery Vision Concept will feature an incredibly intuitive pairing of grille-mounted cameras with a heads-up display in the windshield. The setup will project the view obstructed by the SUV’s hood onto the window, effectively creating a “transparent truck” from the[…]
Over the past weekend I stopped at Lowe’s to pick up paint for my Coleman Stove Project which was part of my gearing up for S.C.A.R.R. When I came out this Discovery was sitting next to me. With the parking lot nearly empty parking directly next to me meant this guy must be an enthusiast. So[…]
I was reading a post on the Facebook Land Rover Owners page about the replacement of a fuel pump on a Land Rover Defender. The North American model Defender uses many of the same parts as a Range Rover Classic and Discovery I. If you are a regular reader of the blog you know I’ve[…]
Steven Lang has put together his own list of the top 10 worst used vehicles. You can visit it directly at THIS LINK (autos.yahoo.com). Its based on his own experience in the auto industry.
This is an interesting list and it has some very popular cars on it, VW Bug, Mini Cooper, and Jaguar S-types. I know my buddy JagGuy said his kids have had trouble with VWs of late. Engine failures with breaking in miles still left to be run. I saw a Mini Cooper in Mickey’s Garage just last week for a head gasket if I remember correctly. The job required the entire front of the car to be disassembled.
So with that lets review the Land Rovers… […]
I’ve been a third wheel. I’ve even been a fifth wheel. Never been a seventh….I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Thanks for reading, Happy Rovering.
Ken Arciga of Los Angeles, California, sent me an email recently. He wanted to thank me for the site and to share some comments back with me on things he’d learned and tried when working on some of the same projects for his 1995 Range Rover Classic expedition project vehicle. He has many of the[…]
Monument Rocks.Quite possibly one of my favorite out of the way places. Best part is you can drive right up to the pillars. And there is a good chance you will be the only one there when you visit. We stopped by on our way home from Denver, Colorado in 2006. From central Oklahoma it[…]
When the rare winter storm hits the central plains besides electricity there is nothing I’d rather have than a Land Rover. Never been stuck (knock on wood). Here in another week or two, we’ll be wishing for cooler weather. Thanks for reading, and Happy Rovering.
