I have to say, having been raised on a farm, I am a complete and utter fan of the good old Land Rover Defenders, especially the series 3 with a short wheelbase. It brings back a lot of memories of my five cousins and I bundling through the vast boot door into mud covered seats that faced each other and a few gun dogs wriggling around on the floor between us.
Honestly, I know very little about cars other than which ones are prettiest, but as previously mentioned, this Defender is pretty much unrivalled for off roading. Every summer my cousins and I would go camping way up on the South Downs in Wiltshire, and there are not many cars that could make their way up to the top of those hills with a load of kids, dogs, tents and food in the back. In fact I had my first driving lesson in a series 3 defender, when I was seven years old, sat on my Grandma’s knee doing the steering whilst she controlled to pedals and gears.
I like to think I was significantly better at my mother than this, who was in fact driving by herself at the age of eight and on one occasion, went careering into a rather large bush, which still grows down the road from the farmhouse even now, albeit at a very odd angle.
