Back To Landrovers - Lena up for sale
« on: November 22, 2013, 04:09:50 pm »
I'm here - and still over there. That is all. Now, some of you may have spotted my first love is up for sale. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/131049281613?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 Bought Lena (named because she had a bad lean due to blue box springs) a complete novice, not knowing she had a cracked block and would expire on me after 25 miles. Thanks to the folks on S2 forum and subsequently OLLR, I got her back to life and learned much about the green meccano. I let her go when the replacement engine gave out and I was offered the current incumbent with a new chassis as part of the deal. Quite nostalgic looking at her again, every dint and scrape brings back memories. Glad to see she's been given an engine transplant and a good welding to. Needed that. Hope she goes to a good home and the new owner takes care and somehow keeps in touch. Quote from Rich P as Lena lay on her side on Gatesgarth "Do you know it has a Defender fuel tank on it?" (thats why there's an extra badge on the door, as a rock went through the skin). Hsppy times - and more to come I hope.

Nice to see Lena again. That was one we should not have sold. Never mind it might just end up on here. Hello Mr Chippers.

To be honest I helped re-engine her when the chap that Mick bought her off first got her ....and I turned her down at 150 ...
My arse is still sore from kicking myself .

Hadn't seen the video Ian. The big tyres don't do her any aesthetic favours and not sure if I took off the sills. That Right headlamp would never align properly and you can tell it's high in the film. Logging on to piggy bank as we speak. I wan't her back........ :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Went for 2750. Fair price for a great motor. If anyone knows where she ends up I'd like to keep in touch.
