First drive! Landrover Series One

I know, it's a mini-roadtrip, but it took us almost across the country. We picked up the "new" 1954 Landrover Series one today and drove it home by the scenic route! Weather was beautiful and we drove the "dijk" from Lelystad to Enkhuizen with water on both sides. The Landrover behaved perfectly and didn't miss a beat! I think this is going to be a reliable friend! Just like
the "Mother ship" Wagoneer. It'll need some small tinkering and paint on the doors and rear hatch. Otherwise it's a fine old shed.

Good old 86" Series one!

Do I look pleased? You bet I do!
