Fine classic machine

I acquired a '90 used at 125,000 miles while living in LA and put another 125,000 on it. It ran just as well at 250,000 miles as new. The drive train and engine are indestructible. Though not a race horse it has plenty of power for highway and off road use. The few times I had to leave the highway it was amazing. I regret that I gave it to someone with no idea of car maintenance. Yes, it needs regular care, preferably at a dealer. They will have a complete maintenance record and can get the parts. As an English car the rubber doesn't like SoCal smog so have the belts checked regularly. No problem with smog checks however. It was a fun car with few quirks. I regret giving it away. A proper owner could easily put a million miles on it.

I purchased my classic a few months ago, a 26 year old car with only 90,000 miles on the clock for a nice restoration project. At the time of purchase I would have told you that I was decent at working on cars, and the car seemed to be in good shape, just a few issues to sort out. Today Ill tell you Ive become very very good at working on cars. I read up on some issues that these cars tend to have and Ill tell you that mine has had every single one. Things started off great until slowly but surly everything fell apart. Purchase a repair manual and a torque wrench, I promise you will need them. Ive gone as far as rebuilding my transmission in my own garage using the repair manual. You have to have a good set of tools if you plan to own one of these beauties, let alone use it as a daily driver as I do. After reading that you may think "why would anyone buy one of these??" Well when she works right shes an absolute dream, comfort is great without being dull. Engine power is more than adequate, and the styling is beautiful. This is a very cool car and turns heads everywhere I go. Off road and on the beach she's unstoppable, older models will have a gear driven transfer case while newer ones have a borg warner chain driven unit (like mine) which is quieter. At this point I dont mind wrenching on her at all, Im 25 and Ive owned over 15 cars, this is by far my favorite. Id recommend one to anyone who is mechanically inclined. Support from forums is stellar and the land rover community is excellent.
