Nah, just that I've always loved the shape of the Range Rover Classic (perfect name - classic design an' all that) whereas I've never taken to the Discovery. Its interior may be more practical space-wise, but to me the RRC has flowing, aerodynamic lines ... for a 'brick on wheels' that is! Laughing

Each to their own.

Richard 'Hoppy' Hopkins - great bloke! Mad as a box of frogs but a great Comp Safari driver with it. Would take great pleasure from racing a cheap-as-chips full-bodied Disco and blowing away the opposition with their £60,000 purpose-built buggies.

This is the photo of him in the Weston Park mud run that appeared in Land Rover world magazine. Incidentally, the journalist who took it won an award for 'Best Sporting Action' at the the national journo awards that year; rightfully so!



It can be viewed much better here - http://richards4x4.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/mudbogger1.png

Hoppy's website is listed in Macks 4x4 info ... of course! http://www.macks4x4info.com/index.php?option=com_sobi2&sobi2Task=sobi2Details&catid=54&sobi2Id=2847&Itemid=68

That buggy boasted a 3.9 litre V8 with a supercharger, and that was long before Land Rover started producing supercharged engines such as the Range Rover Sport. It was an awesome beast, unstoppable in that 300ft of Shropshire mud. cheers

It sounded incredible too!

Tuggy - That Stalwart that went swimming in the lake, it took a Dimond T wrecker and a Foden 6x6 wrecker to haul him out. Don't think the local anglers were too impressed when they lived up to their names and 'wrecked' their pontoon in the process! Twisted Evil

As for the air boat, that had a 3.5 V8 - that also sounded fantastic. Happy days indeed.

I've no shots of that day either. Wouldn't happen now, with digital cameras so handy and cheap without the film and processing costs, we tend to take shots of everything. Great memory though.
