Hallo from the Continent
« on: October 27, 2018, 09:09:20 am »
New here - so please be kind.

Not new to LR's though.

The red thing in the avatar has been with me for over 40 years and has been many places.

Many other LR's and RRC's have come and go.

I was twisted into planning a trip in 2019 to the new LATP event so hopefully we'll meet.

English is not my native tongue - so I beg forgiveness.

Hello.

Please claim a free £3 hat at t'Pit.

I hope you have a small head.
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

I recognise that red 88". I seem to recall doing a few summary jobs on it, visiting its engine bay on a number of occasions.

Yes, Arjan...we will go to the Pit.

Hello!

 Celbrt

I met a french man+ family whilst on our Scotland road trip a few years ago - he was the editor of a small french landrover magazine. He had a white defender 110. Maybe you know him!  ;D

LR Scene in France is quite different from the UK..
