Hello from a Czech guy with an ex-Swiss Army UK-made Land-Rover :)

Hello from the Czech Republic!

 

Got round to this forum due to my newest obsession with all things Scammell, but my current vehicle is of a much lighter type :)

 

"Bernie" is an ex-Swiss Army 1960 Land-Rover Series II 88" petrol-engined soft-top. It was bought in 2007 and driven to the Czech Republic under its own power, which I still believe was more than a bit insane considering the fact I had never driven anything this before and on the motorways we were slower than the lorries, i.e. a target of mockery and silent car-to-car insults and various impolite gestures:D

 

A few photos of Bernie before I get immersed in the Scammell Explorer threads again:nut:

Hello, and a huge welcome to the forum?

 

You may find it is just the Land Rover owners that say hello to you as the Scammel owners will be stuck in the Scammel section...

 

I have a small collection of 1950's and 60's Land Rovers. Always good to see another amongst us :)

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone.

 

The most frustrating thing with all those Scammell classifieds that I've looked at in the past few days is that the price I paid for my (admittedly very decent) Land-Rover could easily buy me a running Scammell Explorer and I'd still have money for a half-full fuel tank...

 

The problem is getting together the same amount of money twice, let's see:cool2:

There's two of them, actually, male and female, both love the Land-Rover as they both know the trip will be to somewhere where it smells all mouse/game/hare etc. :)
