Historical Info -- my way of life changed so I no longer drive a Land-Rover :-(

Lineup of 3 Land Rovers

Groenie, Spikkels, White LR

I don't drive a Land-Rover because it's a 4x4. I drive a Land-Rover because it's a way of life.

Driving a Land-Rover is fun. Don't believe me, read this posting from the Land Rover Owner Mailing List. (This should also give you an idea of my definition of 'fun' :-)

Spikkels, also known as "the Yellow Rand-Lover", is a 1959 Series II Station Wagon. Or at least, that's what it started out as.

My brother bought this Land Rover from a friend in Agulhas, a long time ago (It was grey then, with a red stripe down the side). I helped him strip it down, then he got kinda busy, and I took over the project.

After the 50th Anniversary tour and in preparation for the Y2K trip, I replaced the very tired 2 1/4 engine with a Chev 2.5.
