I am restoring a 1965 Land Rover Series 2a SWB
(It's been off the road for 5 of my 10 years of ownership).
I also like push mowers, catapults and tobacco pipes from the 60's and 70's.
...I'm not 'into' the 60's and 70's, it just seems that things were built to last back then, and thus they are now in my ownership.

He must be one who can tell society to go to hell and get away with it." - Car & Driver, Sept 1964

"Vendetta, I'm not playing into anything. I posted that here because Shapiro is more eloquent than me. Obama is a globalist and obviously thinks that nuking two of their cities was worse than a full scale, bloody invasion, and that America is…"
"Bay d'Espoir is an area from my home province that translates from the French to 'Bay of Hope' yet in English is pronounced as 'Bay Despair'. More confusing is that Bay Despair may have been the original name but was wrongly…"
"PH, that is such a BS opinion piece. I can say with 100% certainty that there is nothing that obama could have said to get a positive article out of the author. Its BS, don't play into it, you are smarter than that."
