Back to movies

It moves! The 1983 Sand Rover is back on the road. This car has not run in about 30 years. Tyres are old, hard and bald so it wheelspins like mad. Nasty noise frm gearbox is the gear with a missing tooth. Otherwise, its still great fun.

Fantastic to see that old classic hit the road again after so many years parked up!
I love running them while in this raw condition before the restoration! I imagine you are going to restore this? Anyway just one more run for old time's sake before the transformation and its amazing to see such old parts still operating! If you think about it the last time it was driven it was probably a dad with his lad too!! Brilliant!

Mad-Bee, apart from new tyres thats about as far as the restoration will go. I'll be leaving the raw 37 year old patina.
