Totally, I fell in love with RRCs not for their ruggedness but their timeless beauty, I grew up surrounded by them far away where they were used as all round vehicles, but never for offroading. The Musée du Louvre in Paris exhibited a Range Rover as an "exemplary work of industrial design" in the 70s and they couldn't have been more right. I might be wrong on this, but I don't think there has been any other vehicle given that honor by them. So yeah, some people will see them as utilitarian beasts of burden, I see mine as functional art - not gonna beat it up. Good thread :thumb:Johnno42- I look at it and admire it like a piece of art. I know you look at it and think about how much fun your going to have in the mud!! Hope yours is running well my friend.
I am seriously considering getting one of this for my daily driver ... actually its not a matter of "if", just "when" - completely love this brick.
_______Lots of people on here seem to be into restoring/keeping them nice which is a different world to me. I bought mine because it was a cheap way to get an offroad vehicle and I figured if I trashed it, I could throw a match in it and walk away. It's a bit of a pity because mine was 9/10 for bodywork etc when I bought it, but its gone a bit downhill since then, and my original plan is in tatters, as I seem to have grown attached to it and I might have trouble lighting the match.
PS what is a levi gremlin? That thing is wrong in so many different ways.
PPS Best classic comparison with a rangy is a jag XJ12. So many things in common, unreliability, excessive fuel consumption, the list goes on...
