If all goes to plan I should soon be moving to an old stone cottage situated down a long, unmade track. Four-wheel drive and decent ground clearance might be a pre-requisite for any winter trip further than the front gate, so I'm wondering about adding a 4x4 to the fleet.

An old Range Rover appeals, and that reminded me of this...

How can you not want one, after that?

Land Rover made some great ads in the 1980s. This is the other classic, complete with a voiceover by Patrick 'Captain Picard' Stewart: "The next time you're late for work, remember that nothing - but nothing - gets in the way of a Land Rover."
