Here's my '95 SWB as of 6:00 p.m. yesterday. I was going 55-60 mph when a van crossed against the light in front of me. 5 vehicles ended up getting damaged, but no one had to go to the hospital (Praise the Lord). I have this sick feeling that the insurance company is just going to total it.

1993 RRC LWB County. 208K miles. Coilspring conversion. I drove it before the previous owner had it converted to springs, and for what he paid for that he could have had everything rebuild and Arnott air springs put in. May do that myself some day, as I miss the amazing ride it had with the air suspension.

My 95 LWB. Completely stock except for the coil conversion. Contemplating what to do with it. It's got a lot of body rot. Not sure if it should be restored, or get one that's not rotten, but I've grown attached to it.

Hi!

I own a Range Rover "20th Anniversary" Limited Edition, sold in France in 1990/91.
Does anybody know of another such car on the road? ...only 300 of which it is number 029.
In the book "Range Rover - The complete story" by James Taylor there is an example showing on page 173.

Below you can see some pictures of my 2 Range Rovers

Here is my 1990 RRC that I picked up about 2 months ago. I've been catching up on some needed repairs (new o2 sensors, rebuilt injectors, new fan and clutch, new tie rod ends, new alternator) and catching up on some maintnenace (replaced all the fluids, filled up the front hubs with swivel ball grease, replaced all the filters).
This car is my snow beast/weekend fun car so I've been enjoying taking the time to go through her and see what all needs attention. I've got a new set of snow tires on a set of Discovery I rims so I'm ready for the first snowfall.

View attachment 13546 Terrible lighting but I saw this thread and had to snap a quick photo and post (will add better ones later). This 1990 County was shipped from Los Angeles to my home in Minnesota earlier this week. The iconic styling and regal yet understated presence and its eccentric and rather confounding character (i.e. phenomenal stereo system for its era, complete with CD changer while lacking expected things like cup holder and glove box) make this a far more interesting (and just as capable) Rover than my long gone P38. The Ardennes green and still fantastic smelling Sorrel leather make for a striking combo; I get satisfaction from simply sitting and admiring the aesthetics of a design that looks downright exotic relative to the ubiquitous GM SUVs and such. Meticulous servicing will be mandatory in order to preserve the standard set by the seller, who owned this Rover for the past 20 years and passed on his thick folder of vigilant maintenance records, but for a machine that new cost 10X more than what I paid for it is one hell of a cool deal.

Here is my 93 LWB. I have done tons of work - Front end complete rebuild, all new calipers, rotors, and brakes. New viscous coupling, complete heater box overhaul including new blower assembly and heater core. All new belts, hoses, and new (genuine) water pump.

I was considering putting larger tires but really like the tall skinny look of the 215 85 16's.

Now just driving and loving it!

On a trip to 500 kms north of Sweden this Christmas. The 4.2 LSE had consumed 15.2 l/100kms at this tank stop after 400kms, not too bad. The M&S tires not an asset in the snow. The air suspension effectively isolates any road feel and this in combination with some steering play and not trusting M&S tire grip placed some extra burden on the drivers mind in keeping a safe track on narrow snowy/icy road sections.
