Land Rover enthusaiasts go weak-kneed

"I say old chap, it leaked in that very same place back in '48."
I don't even care for really old Land Rovers all that much, but there's something quite captivating about this publicity shot taken earlier this year of engineer Arthur Goddard being taken for a drive in a pre-production model dating back to 1948. Goddard, who has lived in Australia since the 1970s, led a team that developed the pre-production Land Rovers. This one is shown in Packington Ford, an original test route used by the development team.

  1. That's a nice photo. It looks like a toy, but I mean that in a nice way.
