    Hadn't heard that one before. Don't think the Spanish slang meaning would look right stuck on the back of my car. I'll stick with its proper name.

    Toyota Hilux Surf 3ltr TD. Beast of a thing, great off-road/on-road. AND it's more reliable than a landy

    I do miss my 90 though. The 90 was lifted by 4 or 6 inches (stood 7'2"), great articulation and awesome off-road. Unfortunately it had no brakes as such, a huge turning circle, terrible visibility, and the windscreen didn't fit correctly (until I attacked it with the mastick)

    Ah yes but you miss your 90, this is the thing, you don't buy a landy for to enjoy getting to your destination without an issue, you get a landy to enjoy the journey! well thats my excuse anyway : )

    Yeah, this had 35's on it, dislocation cones etc. Looked great, and I could park it anywhere - they couldn't get a clamp on the wheels! I don't miss it raining inside when it was raining outside though. Being able to open and start it with a one pence piece did come in handy when I lost the keys

    These are the cars i have at the moment:
    1) Land Rover Freelander 1 - chopped lots of bits off underneath to make it 2wd and bypass the rear diff (big hole in it!)
    2)Land rover Discovery 1 300tdi - Rusty, Muddy, Rattly and Oily, currently on 200K miles, still drives lovely and only looses half a litre of engine oil every 100 miles!
    3)Land rover Discovery 1 300tdi - being chopped up at the moment to make a NCF Sahara. Lots of new bits and shiny bits!

    Todays drive is a freelander I'm roadtesting ready for sale....


    But the usual is a disco 2 atm. LOVE dealing 4x4s, the best perk of the job is I never know what I'm gonna be driving next and if the older landies are actually gonna get me where I'm aiming to go without anointing ma head with oil/ getting rained on via the interior etc etc

    ps Gareth is that a Rav?

    I've got a 6 yr old Skoda fabia vrs, the Mrs has a vw touran, and there's a defender 90 which sounds like a skeleton having a moment of personal relaxation in a filing cabinet, for those moments when I want to be a bit ruffty tuffty.

    Currently driving a 2010 VW Scirocco 2.0T petrol 210bhp, goes like poop off a stick but drinks like like it's on a Marathon des Sables





    Previous to that it was a mkV VW Golf Gti 2.0T petrol, quick and thirsty



    The Scirocco is due to go back in January so not sure what to get next, I'm thinking 320d ED to give the wallet a rest but I'm sick of buying new roof bars every couple of years. Maybe the diesel Roc
