  1. Series Three Throwback Ep. 2

    So, in the last installment we'd just got the Series III all patched up and roadworthy and we were just waiting for a certain someone to finally pass his driving test.

  5. Soul Machine

    This blog was inspired by a recent thread in which that old chestnut of Land Rovers having 'soul' cropped up. Before we begin, let's set some musical accompaniment for this post:



    There we go, and remember, Wednesday Night is Hammond Organ Recital Night...
