1968 LWB Landrover
RUNNER - I rebuilt this 1968 LWB Landie in 2000, and it was used as the family runabout and for shifting logs/trailers etc, until we got the Rangie and Disco. Now kept on as a backup vehicle as doesn't cost much (runs on half price LPG, Road Tax exempt as a Historic Vehicle, and very cheap insurance).
