This was posted on the Range Rover Owners List and at OKRovers message board.

I wanted to share it with you all. It describes the "Rover Thing" perfectly.

"A Land Rover is at once a delightful runabout and a rolling torture
chamber. It combines the best and worst features of a truck with the
insouciance of an MG-TC. It is a car that every man feels compelled to
buy at one time or another, but hardly anybody has a use for. It is best
suited to off-the-road cross-country adventure. Conversely it is not
specifically useful for shopping trips, or general family-household use,
but that's what people do with it. This is one of several instances
where perfectly reasonable people have seemed to take leave of their
senses on first meeting the Land Rover. It is less of a car than a state
of mind. Its owners are the most partisan group imaginable and its
would-be owners are legion."

how true... especially this part: "This is one of several instances
where perfectly reasonable people have seemed to take leave of their
