Burned Out Land Rover Series 3
Pics from Mike:
Here are some photos of my fire fighting
experience . The before , burnt out , after photos,
After fighting a massive fire on the farm
near Clarens ( Lesotho border) .The landy was fitted with a electric fuel
pump with the previous owner running and cable tying the wiring onto the
bottom of the chassis. The wiring burnt in the fire , landy stalled , wind
turned . Six weeks later I recovered from the burns while bailing out at
the last moment. I rebuilt the landy and never trusted it after this. It
was promptly sold at a loss and replaced with a diesel landy.
Land Rover Defender and Disco 3 4x4 Off Road in
Nico Engelbrecht - Two pics of me (Defender 2.8i, 2000) and
my friend Danie Fourie (Disco 3 TD, 2006) doing the Riverwild 4x4 trail
near Sabie, Mpumalanga. Really a great place and very challenging trail
(if you don't own a Land Rover!), the Landies breezed through.
Land Rover Series 2 Rebuild from Tanzania
Gavin sent a pics of his Series 2 (1959) found on mnt Meru in Arusha
I was looking for an old landy to run around town in when I was invited to
an old farm house to look at one that was possibly for sale. Id appreciate
it if u could post it on yr website. It was parked in old barn covered in
bird sh#t and plenty of dust. We rolled her out into the sunlight to get a
closer look only to discover the colour it had been painted. A shocking
metallic "apple sours green". (The car was aptly named "Sours".
The amazing thing about it was the fact that besides the paint job it was
still I recon 99% original. With only the battery missing we quickly put
one in along with a liter of petrol and with one simple push of a button
the engine turned over within a few tries. (It had apparently been
standing for 3 years).
To cut a long story short. I had the boy totally stripped, replaced pretty
much everything that was weathered with original parts which are in
abundance here in Tanzania. The whole process taking me around 9 months
which I managed to get on camera. Around 45 photographs.

Range Rover 6x6 Pick-up
Walker from Winklespruit in Natal writes about a Range Rover 6x6 pickup....
I am currently sitting in a place called
Al Jubail in Saudi Arabia, and am looking at your web site and feeling
very homesick seeing all the Landy pictures.
Strangely not all that many Landy's out
here as they (Saudi's) seem to go for Toyota and Nissan. I have seen one
interesting Landy, it was a 6 X 6 Double Cab Range Rover. Did not have a
camera with so no picture. Another popular small 4 X 4 is the new KIA
Sportage 2.5 V 6. They seem to go very well in the sand.
These guys (Saudi's) spend a lot of time
on Fridays (Sunday here) with their big 4 X 4's screaming up and down
sand dunes. I must admit some of the drivers are very good and the have
big ironies to do some of the things they do on the dunes.
