4WD Action DVD looking for a Rangie to be in shoot, mid March (Sth QLD)

Hey all,

I've escaped the Disco section and snuck over here for a bit. What we're looking for is an 80s V8 Rangie, to take part in a shoot we're doing mid March (16-20) in Sth QLD. Expenses would be covered (within reason obviously). Both the car and owner would need to be in camera a bit, so we'd need someone who doesn't mind having a camera in their face a bit.

Car wise, I'll cut to the chase, it'll be a light hearted competition between three similar vintage vehicles (Roothy's included), so what ever Rangie it is, it'd need to be a decent bit of gear. Both of the other competitors are running twin lockers and a few goodies.

If you're keen or you know someone who you think would fit the bill, please get them to drop me an email with info about them and the car. If possible a quick video of the person saying g'day to the camera too.

Obviously as an LR owner myself I'll be backing the RR

Thanks again

Does it have to be a V8. Our 85 RRC was in the December issue and it has a few goodies. I.m keen if a diesel is ok. (go the Isuzu)

Would submit mine but it's rough and ready and not the most eye appealing to be quite honest. Also I don't have a front diff lock (yet).

Should be a good comparo, go the mighty Range Rover

93 Disco V8- The off-road hack (I couldn't cut up the 92 Rangie!!!)
92 Rangie Vogue- Too good to cut up for an off-roader (still waiting for club reg)
80 Rangie- 4.4, 4 speed still in bits!!

I'll bring mine across too and whack some QLD plates on it, GO THE ISUZU

The Isuzu 110; making anti-stall technology before the modern era, and bearded men look better since the 80's 😎 ..... Oh, and every now and then I'm allowed to drive the L322 Vogue without having a shave...😛

hmm, bugger. I guess my '99 P38A doesn't qualify then... and I've only recently swapped the QLD plates for NSW ones.

I'd love to put my "P38A tractor" up against Roothy's truck, although I'd better get a snorkel first

Even though mine does only have a rear air locker, the traction control does a pretty good job in most situations. The 2" lift (plus adjustable height air suspension) and 33" muddies gives it an overall height advantage of approx 4" over standard P38A's. Add the disconnecting front anti-sway bars, extended shocks and Arnott Gen3 air springs and it's not a bad set-up. Custom front and rear bars improve approach and departure angles and make it far more "agricultural" than most "Toorak Tractors" getting around.

Guess I'll just have to wait until they want to give late 90's Landcruisers and Patrols a flogging.

Cheers, Paul.
