Crazy LR Story:
One night, on vacation in South Africa, 14 of us in a stretched IIa 109 chased a leapord through nasty brush. Spotted him up a tree and spotlighted the little feller. The 109, despite 1,500 pounds of humans, did an admirable job of keeping up.

Why Land Rover: I enjoy knowing my car can be stranded on train tracks, a train hit it, and I'll be ok. (Remember that Rangie in England last year?) Seriously though, my Discovery is a quality built vehicle. My Lightweight is a tank. I love that look that people give me when I tell 'em I've got two rovers. (And it doesn't hurt with the chics either!)

How it all Began:
Back when I graduated college, I couldn't afford much. So I got a used honda that I drove until the wheels literally fell off. 288,000 miles. When it finally went, I wanted something with a little personality -- and I could afford it -- so I bought a Discovery. In Nashville, I used to take it wheeling. Just loved it. And I haven't looked back since.
