England 2012 Range Rover Autobiography 5.0 SC V8 Ipanema Sand
Found some old photos, Strata Florida late 90's..

Nostalgia time, my brother in his lightweight Land Rover and me in my second Range Rover... Thought someone might like a trip down memory lane...

1983 Range Rover 4 door Vogue 3.5V8 resprayed in Ford mercury grey (my favourite colour at the time) Front and rear fabricated bumpers, Warn 8274 winch (wish I still had it, these were £100 second hand at the time... £1,500 now..!!) 2" lift, 32" tyres, underbody protection, front and rear locking diffs...

1979 Land Rover Air portable Lightweight 2 1/4 petrol restored to as new with a period Warn 8274 and 750 tyres.

My brother still has the lightweight, he's been doing some more work on it recently to get it A1... He has the full toolkit for the rear tailgate but it's stored.. Inertia reel seatbelts fitted and the highlift has been stripped, galvanised and painted..

That lightweight Land Rover is cool. I've always liked them. I think Land Rover should create a new one.

Many a trip on this back in the 1990's in my old 90, fab track back then, sadly its not so good condition as many a tracks have gone off the true route bypassing the sunken road where water collects and is deep.
Had a friend ride her horse down there last month too.

Thanks for sharing Thumbs Up If it dont work.......burn it!

If the IId tool cant fix it.......burn the FF.

If the FF cant be fixed......buy a Land Cruiser!

If the LC cant be fixed..............................................BUY a horse !!

Thanks for this post Pete.
Memories are precious.
You have stirred up lots of similar “ brother” thoughts in my head.
When I think of the best things we did together while he was still alive they always include a Land Rover in some form or other.
He was very proud of his long wheelbase truck cab and I think I learned most of my spanner skills working with him to keep it on the road.
I helped him completely rebuild it onto a brand new galvanised chassis , complete with a new bulkhead.
He did most of the mechanical work and I sorted out all the electrics.
When my Classic VM blew a cylinder head gasket I would never had tackled it alone, but together we did it in a weekend.
I wish I could share pictures as good as yours with you, but sadly they are all just memories.
