    I have visions of them trying to film this only for each take to be ruined by a guy blasting up the hill, flat out, in a Jensen Interceptor. :D







    Yes I know that wasn't really filmed in Yorkshire.....

    The suspension wouldn't have liked the cobbles one bit, but the Jensen would have flown up there, provided the transmission didn't fail. :p

    It just looks similar to an AMC Pacer. I'm after a Defender instead now, a lot more practical.

    If you're not a farmer, you have no way of justifying such a huge, planet damaging fuel guzzler as a Land Rover. Remember, I'll be dead before global warming fries the people living on the South Coast, you will be suffering through it.

    In the 70's I had a Hayman guitar and played it through my Earth amp. Nuff said.
