It's apparantly one of the first four landies ever made...
you sir...have crap taste in cars
Oh no....You've completely shattered my entire life. However will I cope? How can I go on????????
Don't like it? **** off. It is a simple concept, really
Ahh, the "wedge loads of box section in there" school of lowering.
Then again it's a landy, so it was bound to be awful
Bryn's already started on lowering it properly. That's how the guy who built it did it. It's going four-linked with a panhard rod for lateral location and coilovers
Thats Sick. Lights look "Radj" as out lol. and as far as im aware, totally original. Me likey.
Rear lights are getting binned for original S1 LR ones
Ahh, it'll still be a Landy though
I like it, although i'm not really sure why its called a "hot rod"... care to explain?
Other than the body panels, no.
Blind hatred of marques is idiotic.
It was built to get around the 'pre-49' rules set in place by boring people who say a car can't be a 'hot rod' if it was made after '49.
Said people usually drive identikit black '32 Fords.
So the landie is a hot rod.
SD1 Vitesse engine should ensure it has a little grunt.
I always (stereotypically, agreed.) thought a hot rod was something along the lines of this...
...and not a Landrover with the suspension dropped
That Landy is to Awesome for words & far to good for comments like above.
I'll sit back & copy & paste these pics for posterity & judge others by what they say about this motor.
I've not seen owt like it which makes it completly unique to me I think it's Brilliant.
A 'traditional' hot rod is 'pre-49', modified using bits and bobs salvaged from other cars.
Bryn's S1 fits that description.
