Land Rover
OK, I have succombed and bought a 1973 Series 3 Land Rover. And, well, its not particularly environmentally friendly, but its alot of fun, safe (for the occupants), ultra-reliable and cheap. The last item may be a suprise, but at over 30 years old it doesn't pay any road tax and fully comprehensive insurance is 150 per year. This particular one has a galvanised chasis and, of course, has aluminium bodywork. So not much rusting going on there. Anyway, thought for the day is don't drive through deep puddles quickly. Water goes over your roof and saturates the engine compartment. The result is wet electrics and a Land Rover that stalls within 30 yards.
