The next person to call my Jeep a Land Rover will be beaten about the head with a broken Rover axle halfshaft until sensible. Discuss.

It's usually the other way around. Landy owners cringe when ordinary people call their vehicles 'jeeps'.

I really don't mind. Both are iconic vehicles. Have owned both over the years and would happily own a landrover again, even if people don't know what to call them!

The Pajero Owners Club forum changes the word Jeep to 4x4 automatically....

aaaah, the old Land Rover Snobbery.

 

I have been castigated at work for buying a Jeep, and to have the audacity to park it in the car park to boot.....

 

Working at Jaguar Land Rover, there are only two people 'get' why I have a jeep.  One took a permanent role to get one of the last defenders off the line as a one of his company cars.  The other is a South African contractor who drives a heavily modded Land cruiser in the bush back home.

 

They are even non plus when you tell them the first Land Rover Prototype used a Willys Chassis.

So who's going to join us at the Peterborough Land Rover Show?

 

That's a possible this year. Everything else seems to clash with family events but I'm hopeful at least one of the jeeps will turn a wheel this year at some point!!
