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.

Elizabeth R was motorpool mechanic during the second world war and regularly used "beaters" such as mine in Scotland.

They would have been "beater" Jeeps, Bedfords and Humbers.

Rob-Lord Mountbatten died (along with his 14 year old grandson) being blown up by IRA while he was on vacation.

Prince makes Land Rover discovery


http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/s...st/7010548.stm



Prince Charles has come across a Land Rover belonging to his late grandfather which had been sitting in a garage for 40 years.

The prince was visiting the garage in Ballater, Aberdeenshire, which has had the vehicle since the 1960s.

It was owned by King George VI, who used it during stays at nearby Balmoral Castle on Royal Deeside.

Garage owner Robert Pringle said: "The prince was very interested in it. He was delighted."

'Runs well'

Prince Charles, who is known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, went round the car, which is to be refurbished, for a closer inspection.

The Duke and the Duchess of Rothesay were touring businesses including Pringle's Garage.

Mr Pringle said: "The Land Rover belonged to the late King and was bought by us in 1966.

"We are planning to do it up. It is a beautiful car and it still runs well."

What a classic "Rover in the barn" picture. I'm curious as to what level the vehicle will be refurbished...

Tonga's newly crowned monarch, King Siaosi (George) Tupou V (C, standing in Land Rover), inspects his troops during the Coronation Military Parade in Nuku'alofa on August 2, 2008. The 60-year-old ruler is remaking his former image as an eccentric batchelor prince with a love of elaborate military uniforms into a sovereign leading Polynesia's last kingdom towards democracy.
