More classless:


Would a Cruiser or Jeep or Hummer look as appropriate in that scene? But the Land Rover can pull it off.

If I took a 110 MOD with canvas roof to a funeral I'd feel really wierd. For that matter any tricked 4x4 is innapropriate for a funeral, it's where they all seem redneck to me. Stock is fine. Modded yuk....

My dad tells me that the new film about Elizabeth R "Queen" has a lengthy scene with her driving, breaking down in and repairing a 110.

I'm going to see it just for that.

I remember attending Lord Mountbatten's funeral in Aug/Sept. 1979 at Westminster Abbey (probably before Jack was born-lol). It seemed very appropriate that his coffin was carried away after the funeral in an army Land Rover. Especially after the manner in which he died.

Yeah, one thing for a military man to be moved on a military vehicle when he was lost in battle, but you don't see the queen rolling up in jacks beater land rover 110. I still declair the military land rovers have thier place strictly.

Well this moron on ExPo went to the Heritage Motor Centre in the UK and check out the pics he took:






He was all over that stupid Tickford and never even noticed Range Rover Number FUCKING One right next to it.
This chump was also snapping pics of a Cuthbertson conversion like it was cool.
He had no idea.

This guy on Flickr knew what to snap pics of.

It doesn't show clearly, but the badge in the center of the grille is this. I got mine from my grandfather, who was on safari in the sixties. He swiped it from the Land Rover he used for the trip.
