I use my Classic as transport for my work as a visual artist. My first Land Rover was a beautiful 88inn Series III Station Wagon with overdrive; I still regret selling it.
My next choice was a Defender 110 but the prices were too high. I could buy a couple of Classic Range Rovers for the cost of a vehicle, very capable and keeps up with modern traffic and is still a great workhorse.
I've rebuilt the engine and my next plan is to fit new tyres and suspension - I'm enjoying every moment of it.
