Following last year's enforced week of being housebound and several days of precarious travel due to the weather, I had been looking out all year for a cheap 4 wheel drive vehicle.
Today I found one and have bought an old Range Rover 3.5.
It's in quite good condition really for its age (1989)and covered very few miles due to the previous owner having laid it up for a few years and then only doing 200 miles or so per year.
He had just put 4 new tyres and a battery on it too.
I put it in for an immediate MOT and it has only failed on a couple of faults which we will fix tomorrow with a sheet of steel and the welding set.
Oddly, they did not flag up that the horn and LH indicators were not working but they knew that I was aware of that.
I don't have to tell you that I didn't pay a lot for it and that it will be promptly getting the LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) treatment.
