CarMan's new arrival with ongoing updates

As yet unnamed. Born 1998 and been looked after by very good friend since 2007.

Originally a truck cab and now with County hard top and aftermarket side windows, which offend!

Lovely condition above and below, but not perfect cosmetically of course, in Caledonian blue I believe.

Have lots of thoughts what to do whilst keeping fairly original, but it drives really well with only 14k miles covered in the last 12 years by a very competent LR owner.

Are the aftermarket windows fitted on the wrong sides, it looks like the catches are at the back instead of the front. nobody is perfect but being Scottish is a start

Hmmmm we have triplets, but not identical and there is a view we should not keep them all, which seems harsh Sad
