I don't get how you made that look so difficult. My father's daily drive is a 1963 Vitesse with no seat belts and there really is nothing to it. Also you used too much choke.

Of course you can have that as your daily drive, I drove a M35a1 an entire year as my daily driver. At least this car fits in the towns parking spots

that would be a great base for more modern off-road build. better engine, better gearing and some chassis upgrades

"The London end of the Great West Road became Britain's first dual carriageway when it was opened in 1925 by King George V."
Just thought I'd clarify that there were definitely dual carriageways in the UK during the 60s ✌️😉✨

You wouldn’t want to daily a series 1 and series 2 Land Rover. Seriously. Anything that is newer will be fine 1-2. It’s really challenging to daily them

For those of you that don’t know, miles was sold. 17 aug 2020. If you do a total car check it shows when the V5C was changed and that’s the date. And no I’m not mistaking. I doubt there is another blue 2000 Skoda Octavia diesel with 432000miles in it

A friend has a Series 3. Comedically bouncy on the leaf springs, you go through all the gears and are still only going slow, drink through fuel, and have a real feeling that if you have a crash you won't come out well. Also endless tinkering and repairs, but very fun and charming, and very refreshing compared with modern vehicles which have so much thrown on them.

Imagine driving on a main road and you just see an old beaten landrover dive full speed into the shrubbery

This had some old top gear vibe. I like that. I don’t understand why more car channels on youtube don’t copy top gear challenges.

I have an old Mini, and it’s very similar, but I’m used to that so probably not as bad to me, awesome car! 👍

That is a very odd way to try to bump start a car. It looks like you put it in first when everybody knows that you should use second and also why were you BOTH cranking the key when you were bumping it? NO. Besides I think the problem was too much choke, especially it you'd already had it running recently.
I like watching your show but I can't help having lost a tiny bit of respect for you.
You should start it with the starting handle if you've got one.

I live with a '83 BJ60 Land Cruiser, and love it! It will do 110km/h, downhill and downwind, but it's happiest at 60-80. Every few days you give her a good once over. Every month there's something to replace or re-grease... but it goes anywhere! :)
