    i hope they preserve the Landy as it is rather than trying to improve it.
    I saw Tom Cruises truck in its restored state and it is a shame when people cant preserve vehicles in their original condition

    What is original? When it left the factory? When you remember what it was like on TV? (or when your father had it etc.)

    Original means as it is as it is now, with small improvements to be made if it needs to be driven and roadworthy.
    If it doesn't need to be driven just stop the rust if it has any.
    Refurbishing it and making it shiny wont add to its character.

    Just a guess, but I would guess that it was so overloaded in the tail that he needed some weight up front, also giving him some shade in our unforgiving outback heat.

    Jack Absolom, The Leyland Brothers, Alby Mangels and Malcolm Douglas would all be strangers to you?
    Just don't add Les Hiddins to that list. I think you can get banned from this forum for not knowing who he is!
    You can add Vincent Serventy to the list. but I think he had an early nissan patrol.
