1. You have your mechanic on speed dial, right below your spouse.

2. You have 10% of your paycheck send directly to your mechanic.

3. You know how to replace an air spring bladder with camp fire cooking utensils. While in the woods.

4. "Removed hunk of tree and replaced with new O2 sensor" is a perfectly acceptable report from your mechanic.

5. You look longingly at large humps of dirt at construction sites.

6. You not only wish for snow, you also get out before the plows do.

7. You not only know what a valve block is, you know there is a guy in Nebraska who can help you with it. No matter where in the world you are.

8. You park in the street, to not drip oil into your driveway.

9. You get a strange unexplainable joy from switching your suspention from the lowest to the highest setting for no apparent reason, whilst sitting in traffic.

10. You don't drive around the puddles, you aim for them.

11. You sit in traffic wishing there was a seemingly impossible shortcut you could take in full view of all other (static) road users.

12. You give all other Range Rover/Land Rover drivers the nod, or wave as they pass you.

Aim, and depress the accelerator!

Sidewalks are always an option - speaking from experience :D

You have to ease yourself out of that one when not in a Rover. I "parked" my Audi on an 8 foot pile of chuckies two days after I bought it.

The first road to be closed due to snow in the UK every winter is the one between Cockbridge and Tomintoul. It looks like this. The blue thing at the bottom of the picture is the bonnet of my Classic.

There was a stuck snow plough about two miles below.

I overtook a bus on the pavement in my Series 3 88".
I was 18 at the time, it wasn't my finest hour.

13. Leaks and drips are not a problem, just another indicator there is still some oil left in the crankcase.

14. You have to pick small hondas and smart cars out of the grill and brushguards.

You constantly keep thinking of selling the Range Rover, for something
seemingly more reliable. But once it's sold want it back. `) /:( :lol:

Those are great!

Seems that when you meet other RR owners you start out with some sort of confession...

"Hi, I'm ______ and I own more than one Rover..."

Brush marks down the side add value.

You get instant air con when going over a hard bump from the rear hatch.

You see a look of horror in the face of the kid in the hot hatch that just rounded a bend on a single track lane at speed and is now engulfed in a pall of smoking squeeling tyres as his brakes lock up not to mention the need for fresh clothing.

I love the look of horror on the faces of MKIII drivers when they see my Classic. Wait 10 years when yours cost $3,500. It will look the same.
