This pic cracks me up. I love how the Land Rover stands just a little taller.

I've always wondered if this was the crew who did it.

As you can see, I've been going through some old pics in my computer.

I just ran across this one with the giant torque wrench:


And I also ran across this blast from the past by Rob:


I searched and searched for that pic of Perrone Ford in his spic and span pants standing over Black Man's Kryptonite Jennifer True pointing toward the muddy tires on Perrone's beater Rangie, but I couldn't find it. Damn. That pic was a classic.

I love this pic:


It reminds of the parallels between Heckler & Koch and Land Rover. Both companies once made very special products. They may have been pieces of shit, but they were the result of the designers' ideas of what made something good or bad. They were not the result of focus groups or market research or some other such bullshit.

Both Heckler & Koch and Land Rover were premium companies that were eventually sold off to other interests who bought these premium companies in an effort to go legit. Unfortunately, the new owners knew nothing about offroading or shooting and so they fell back on tactics like market research and focus groups.

Both companies were traded off numerous times, so the situation got even worse. Now both companies produce mediocrity rather than excellence.

Can you imagine His Holiness riding around in a Sport?

And yet he looked great in a Range Rover.
