Moving to Facebook .......

I rather would advertise in an old fashioned local newspaper but hey, you have to keep up with the rest of the world so I've created a Facebookaccount under the name of "Range Rover barn" . Perhaps shift from the Blog to Facebook with the same content!?

Never really came across these panels but recently discovered that they are made out of fibreglass! That will take some time before the rust appears!

Range Rover Classic convertible ....

Somebody interested in a Classic convertible? Roof is missing so maybe have to fabricate something yourself. Very smooth engine and runs for miles on a gallon.....

Another Tuscan blue bites the dust ........

Hate to say it, but another Tuscan blue Rangie less on the road.......Would have been about 35 years somebody's soulmate and today it ended at the scrapheap. Fortunately, heaps of parts went to other Rangies........

Don't know for sure, but I guess these are the Lucas covers for the early foglights you would find on the early Rangies?!

Bubble Car

Found an original Bubble Car grille for the Classic in very good nick! Bubble Car was an Italian company that made this grille for the RRC in the late 70's out of plastic.

the passenger seat...

Some people not always have a passenger next to them, but sometimes also a complete V8 for their Rangie....
I wonder how things end when taking a roundabout at 50mph.......

Some people trying to lose weigth to go faster but this seems a bit too radical.......Maybe the prototype of air vented brakes!?

Daily driver

Though I like the original, good looking, Classic, I'm not really setting a good example of what it should be with my own daily driver....Even restoring the "Red Baron" might be to late so as long as it drives.....
