Many impressions, very few words. Short and sweet!
What it is: A bright orange with black short wheel base Landy. Unfortunately unavailable for purchase (unless you can bribe someone to sell you theirs second hand) as they’ve all been snapped up!
I’ve always thought that the Landrover Freelander looked a bit like the odd horse out in the Landy stable – it was just a little bit strange-looking and didn’t fit either the mould of the rough and ready Defender or the more luxurious Discovery. It seemed to hang in there like an uncomfortable third wheel. But no more.
Nou nog méér Land Rover!
Hoe méér dinge verander, hoe méér bly hulle dieselfde. Almal herken dadelik ‘n Land Rover Defender as hy (of sy) hom sien; of dit nou ‘n1950 model is of die jongste 130 met sy dubbelkajuit en groot bak met ‘n seilkappie agter, maak nie saak nie. Wat my laat dink aan die Bybelse gelykenis van nuwe wyn in ‘n ou wynsak!
