Thread: Landy Owners Beware

  1. #1

    Landy Owners Beware

    Went shooting Saturday on new farm and talking to farmer he stated that he had been to local auction with his son. They did their buisiness and returned to the Defender to find that some PRATT had removed the screw in door bolts securing the hinges to gain access to the interior and as the mirror was secured by the hinge bolts the mirror had also been taken. Another thing to try and make your vehicle secure but not sure how in this case as hinges and fixing bolts are external on Defenders and give these PRATTS easy access. Glad i parted with mine.

    I thought this was gonna say

    "Landy owners beware! You bought a rubbish, cold, draughty, uncomfortable death trap with the reliability of a French soldier and the watertightness of a wicker basket"

    My back is still sore from driving a 110 all day!

    I suspect you've probably provided the crucial clue to solve the crime - the stuff probably just fell off of its own accord.

    Just bust a gut laughing at above replies.

    Like you Wingy drove landy's for 20 years as main car Disco's and last one a 59 plate Defender 110. Like you just got rid of it and got new Hilux Invincible last week. What a truck like you i will never buy a Landy again. I will still drive one as i have 40 year old tax exempt series 3 set up for lamping. Anyone wanting to buy a Hilux i can recommend Pinkstones of Stoke on Trent. Also had a cat clamp fitted. Andrew Collins in sales and Tom in service both top men.

    Jimbo can't stop laughing !!!!!!!

    Theres nothing like a Landy for off roading/lamping
    Unfortunately theres nothing like a Landy when it comes to road work/comfort and reliability either
    Twenty five years down the line and I've moved to a Hilux which I can actually drive without thinking which bit will break or fall off next !

    Oh come on please!

    90% of all Land Rovers ever manufactured are still on the road..................................



    the other 10% made it home..................................


    eventually.
