    We have names for all of our vehicles, but the Range rover has always been called the range rover or the rangie, despite it actually having a name.

    I should have sided with Shane and called it the ****box as well.

    or money pit.
    sow's ear.
    or Rear Admiral, because there's always some kind of sooty **** coming from it's tailpipe.
    Roads?.. Where we're going, we don't need roads...

    I like that! The “shiny ....box” neatly sums it up The term "Rangie"

    Doesn't that all depend on whether one is viewing the internal or external **** box surfaces?

    Our Discovery is called the 'Discovery'

    But if its just emptied our pockets, for some reason,it seems to be called the '****box' for a while.
