I had a 1983 County Station Wagon. That thing was indestructible. Never let me down, was a beast off road. I did a lot of mild tinkering on it but rather out of choice than necessity, I am no mechanic but I could understand what was going on and keep it on the road. Parts are cheap and they are like meccano to work on. I had a 3.5L V8 and had it converted to LPG, so it was very economical to run. They have a unique driving style, I found mine easiest to drive in wellies, no kidding! If you buy one you will fall in love with it, wish I still had mine.
I got a Discovery a few years ago. POS thing. Came home on a flat bed more than once, build quality was crap. Never again. I would buy a REAL Landy again though.
