Default One more Roverhead from down under.

I and NM chance upon each other, due to a mere fact the we both are extreme fan of this firang made 4x4. Here are few of his prized possessions.

PS: And NM if you are reading this Sorry! for not able to arrange the buyout of that SIII that I saw in DJ and send you images. I found the deal shady with lot of unpaid tax, due to it being a taxi. Look at the brighter side you got even better one. Congratulations.!

Here are the porn for Roverheads. Enjoy.!

This is so nice and the simplicity of these vehicles is just so great. Imagine dismantling & fixing things on the go like lego blocks.

yes, do share more details and stories of this vehicle/ownership

Nice vehicles. One person owning two landrowers. I feel the location is somewhere in Coorg or Chickmagalur.

Dunno much about CNM, but MEJ was sourced from Nagpur recently.

NM is an Autohead from Bangalore. Apart from his love of LR, he also loves bikes. He has huge collection of old bikes.

PS:BTW there are three landrovers

Hello sir, nice rides you have there.

I saw it waiting there with two guys inside. Did you see a black Bolero momentarily stop with the driver admiring your ride?? That would be me

I thought of walking over but those parts of Bangalore are frequented by snob hobs. So drove off.

Hey, thanks for the intro Ken. I will post more. as soon as I get the pics from the photographers, you know how it is.

You cant shoot from the cockpit.

My difflock installation has had a setback due to mismatch of the air-locking diffs from ARB. I will be seeing the chaps on the otrs soon and hopefully they will shoot the articulating landy while I drive.

Cheers all.

I may smoke a pipe but run on blood and EP90. so do stop an say hello.
