This was my first Rover. My wife thought it would be cool to have a vehicle that didn't loose value over time, so somehow she ended up with an internet search that found this thing in Puyallup, Washington, and I don't think she even realized that I had seen The Gods Must Be Crazy many times when I was a kid. It was my daily driver while a substitute teacher, then went back seat to the 1994 Disco we had, and was finally sold because it was "impractical" and "unsafe" for toddlers and infants. Sheesh, what was I thinking?
I bought it back five years later. It was again my daily driver for more than a year, getting me to and from work with a soft top and no heat without fail. Now it resides in the garage and takes fun trips here and there. We took the top off and did the COVID 2020 drive through graduation for my son in it. We will never sell this car.
I have Defender seats in it, a phone charger, OME shocks, Rocky Mt. Springs, and vacuum assist brake master -- everything else is stock. There is nothing in the world like driving a classic Series Rover.
