    I’m hoping my Cali will be more reliable than a Land Rover! In fairness to my old Freelander, it wasn’t a bad one, but not a patch on the Japanese stuff i.e. Land Cruiser / Subaru.

    The Mark 1 was a real motor (mine was a black 1600GT with no bumpers - not a gentleman's car). The Mark 2 was a 'hairdresser's coupe', except for the JPS version. Not sure what to say about the Mark 3 but the 3-litre V6 always looked the business when Bodie drove one sideways everywhere in The Professionals.
