An upside-down Land Rover has emerged on a Cornwall, UK beach. A number of UK news outlets have reported the story and shared some incredible photos. The Land Rover belonged to a local resident, who lost it on the beach 30 years ago.
The photos show the green, algae-covered wheels, axles, and chassis of the old Land Rover, eerily appearing from beneath the sand.
This month we bring you a story of true dedication and the bond between a young man and his faithful steed. In this version of that classic tale, the steed is a 1990 Range Rover Classic, and the young man is one Patrick Turbett, from Penfield, New York.
In March of 2015, Patrick and his wife Jacque embarked on a full-body makeover of Patrick’s Range Rover. The infamous frozen road salt margarita mix of New York winters had taken its toll, and most of the metal connecting the body to the frame had completely disintegrated.
A quick update on the INEOS 4x4, announced earlier this year by Jim Ratcliffe, the billionaire chairman and founder of INEOS, a giant chemical company based in the UK. The company says that it is beginning its search for a manufacturing site. Ratcliffe, a supporter of the UK Brexit, said that he would not rule out building the vehicles outside of the UK. The company would like to build the vehicles in the UK but also said, “our hearts cannot be allowed to rule our heads”.
The INEOS 4x4 will be built by INEOS Automotive. Ratcliffe is a big fan of the Defender, and now famously offered to buy the rights to build his own Defenders in order to keep the iconic vehicle alive.
According to UK news sources, warranty provider Warranty Direct looked at cars typically just out of their manufacturer's original warranty and revealed that Land Rover 4x4s had the highest number of authorized claims for vehicles of this age. Four-year-old Land Rover models have more warranty claims than those from any other company with the classic Defender accounting for nearly one in three of them.
The blokes from the UK’s “Top Gear” had a chance to brush up on their Land Rover-ese recently, as they combined a review of the new Range Rover “Velar” with some time behind the wheel of the original vehicle that inspired that name. Nothing less than a preproduction Range Rover Classic, all of which were also code-named Velar.
Two weekends ago, the Ottawa Valley Land Rover (OVLR) club held its 34th Annual Birthday Party event. This is OVLR’s largest annual event and normally falls on the third weekend in June. The event is near the town of Maberly, in Southeastern Ontario about 90 minutes North of the U.S. border.
More news reports from around the internet regarding our favorite automaker... And Jaguar, too.
The Jaguar Land Rover Classic division has proven so popular that its operations have now expanded into their own facility. The newly designated Classic Works site is located in Coventry, the ancestral home of both brands.
At 150,000 square feet in size, the facility is one of the largest of its type anywhere in the world. It contains a showroom, a 54-bay workshop, and storage for vehicles and their component parts. All the more room to store the over 500 classic vehicles the classic division recently acquired.
Starting in September, JLR will offer scheduled tours of the new facility. Speaking from experience with other Land Rover tours, a trip through this facility combined with a Land Rover Experience off road drive would be a lovely way to spend a rainy afternoon in the UK.
Atlantic British is proud to offer a range of transmission service kits for owners of Land Rover LR3, LR4, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Full Size vehicles. Modern automatic transmissions require careful scheduled maintenance, and the ones on these vehicles are no different. The costs and headaches involved in changing a failed transmission can be downright eye-watering. Therefore it goes without saying that owner should see scheduled fluid and filter changes as a necessary procedure to ensure a long service life.

Welcome to 'Profiles in "Courage,”' a new feature here on the Roverlog. In this series of articles, we seek to recognize individuals who have aimed for the stars in pursuit of their Land Rover ownership experience. Regardless of whether a project is still just a twinkle in one's wallet, a fully realized going (and stopping) concern, or an utter failure to be kept secret from your mates, those stories need to be told.
I use the word "courage," because while your friends and family members may (don't worry, they do) think you are a wrench-wielding, environment-destroying, garage-locked Neanderthal, in your Land Rover's eyes, you are a Hero. Maybe even a Superhero. The day you handed over a cashier's check or stack of Benjamins for that algae-covered, flat-tired hulking pile of aluminum with a chassis and firewall doing their best Swiss Cheese impersonation, you revealed your true nature. You were either brave or stupid. Nobody wants to be stupid, so let's go with brave.
I'll start with my own story, and some thoughts about why Land Rovers captivate the imaginations of so many, and to such extent. And, why I'm so stupid. I mean, brave. Right then.
As all of our loyal readers will know, our Inside sales team leader, Eric “extension 231” Riston can only sit at his desk and take calls for so long. Every year, as the snow starts to melt and white gives way to green, signaling the imminent end to the infamous, Land Rover-eating Albany road-salt season, Eric begins to develop a twitch. If left unaddressed, it may cause him to enter a catatonic state, making him useless on the phones. The only thing that can cure this condition is the rumble of a healthy Land Rover V8 engine, and the promise of an open stretch of highway, either the blacktop kind or the “Vermont divided” kind.
With that out of the way, we bring you to the first 2017 installment of “On the Road” with Atlantic British. Take it away, Eric.
With Memorial Day upon us, and the summer rally season fast approaching, it was time to pull the 'On the Road' Discovery 2 out of its winter slumber and give it a good shakedown run.
