Well, in the spirit of the hippo, after which the Freelander was nicknamed, a new club is bubbling to the surface.
In the manner of many recent clubs it started as a Facebook group at http://tinyurl.com/FreelanderClub which has steadily grown in the last five months to over 200 members with fans of the model joining daily. The club is about to surface from its cyber pond with its first pub meet on 13th December at The Sparrow pub on Coombe Fields Road, Ansty, Coventry CV7 9JP.
Founder, Matt Pusey says, ‘I decided to buy a F1 and at first I didn't like them but now I’ve got one all I can say is I’m never going anywhere else. So I decided to create a Facebook group just for a bit of fun with like-minded people so that they could get advice and parts and it just grew from there’.
If you like your hippos and fancy getting involved in the club either join the FB group or contact Matt at email@example.com.
