Old Vehicles

Our first ever Land Rover (as a family) was a 1992 Range Rover Vogue SE of which I have dedicated a whole page to elsewhere on this site! After the demise of the Classic Range Rover, the next car to enter our ownership was an ‘S’ registration (1998) 50th Anniversary Freelander. This was a 1.8 petrol model, which was also a Manual. This was replaced by the ‘Y’ (2001) registration TD4 Freelander which we still have.

The next car was my first personally owned Land Rover, another Frelander. This was a ‘V’ reg Xi petrol, manual, that I got off EBay for £1100. It turned out to be an utter lemon! Eventually re-sold it on EBay.

In November 2012, I got a 54 plate (2004) Freelander.  It was a 1.8 petrol model – face-lifted, had the obligatory head gasket renewed – also an ES. Anyone who owns one of these vehicles must appreciate the need to have two, as one or the other is always off the road! I eventually sold this and at the start of 2018 I purchased a Range Rover Vogue 53 plate (2003) TD6 – 3 litre diesel. I got this from a friend who had owned it from new, and we had a lot of fun in this car. I only had it from February through to November of the same year, forced to get rid of it due to running costs. In November of 2018 we got an (almost) new 2017 Discovery Sport HSE Luxury. Still have it, and love it. Much more car-like than any of the other Land Rovers it is still a lot of fun to drive.
