My life with the Green Oval started when I was five years old growing up on a farm with a Series II.
Many years ago I restored a 1973 Range Rover Classic, and I'd been promising myself I'd have another Range Rover.
I bought this L322 just over a year ago to tow our twin-axle caravan, both in the UK and in Europe. It was standard apart from Kahn alloys and side bars, and I have since added a tuning box (it now produces 220bhp and more torque), and fitted cross-drilled, grooved and vented discs in order to help to stop our caravan. I've also changed all the bushes and fluids, and aded a new set of General Grabber AT2 tyres. It is incredible for our European jaunts and eats the kilometres with ease. These shots were taken in the Halkidiki region of Greece on a recent 5000-mile trip. In almost every Greek town we visited, drivers were waving at us, tooting horns and shouting 'Land Rover good!'. The Range Rover performed faultlessly, despite having covered 160,000 miles in her lifetime. We also completed a 10-day tour of Switzerland at New Year, so that was her second trip of the year.
Future plans are for a tour across Scandinavia in the Range Rover next year, followed by Iceland and Portugal after that.
