Yes, as long as a good mechanic was maintain it and if it had parachutes to put on.

Tell us a little about your background, your career, and where you live.

I am a native Vermonter, I live in North Pownal, VT. I have been a Construction Contractor for 22 years.  I like to build and maintain things, probably why I am still driving a Land Rover.  I learned to drive off road at the age of 12 on VT class 4 roads and logging property.  I enjoy a lot of camping, kayaking, fishing and off-roading. I have own many off-road platforms, but Land Rovers are my favorite.

Been on an adventure? – tell us about it

If you could ask Land Rover for a particular type of vehicle what would it be?

I would like Land Rover to make a 100 inch wheel base Defender with a powerful V8.

If you were on safari which three (living, dead, or fictional) people would you pick to bring along?

Lazz Mckenzie, living, because he is an essential on any trip.  If you have met him you know why.  Marlin Perkins, dead, because who wouldn’t want him on safari.  Bumble Bee, fictional, because who doesn’t want an alien robot that turns into a car around.

The Solihull Questionnaire

If Land Rover made an aircraft would you fly in it?   Why/Why Not?

No. Hell no. Don’t want to play the “what’s that noise” game at 5,000 feet 

Tell us a little about your background, your career, and where you live.

Born in New York City, Staten Island to be exact, aka the cousin Oliver of the boroughs. Grew up in Jersey. Went to college in New Hampshire fell in love with New England and never left. I practice real estate in Boston, but live about a 100 miles out of town in rural New Hampshire in a town with no post office and more dogs than people.


What’s your team name?

Team Blockheads. When you see my yellow labs it makes total sense


How many Land Rovers have you owned and which was your favorite?

A 73 Series 3 88, 96 Disco, 93 RRC, 95 RRC and currently a 60 109, 67? Lightweight and a 98 D1. By far the lightweight.  Actually has a little speed, for a Rover


What’s the best thing about owning a Land Rover?

They give you a sense of humor and patience and if they don’t, nothing will


What’s the worst thing about owning a Land Rover?

I’ve heard good things about something called “heat” inside vehicles. Hoping Land Rover decides to look into that one day.


Been on an adventure? – tell us about it

Are we talking a breakdown adventure? Because I don’t know how much room I have.


If you could ask Land Rover for a particular type of vehicle what would it be?

A lhd 130 would be nice but a vehicle from Rover chock full of lightweight parts would be nicer.  You know how tough it is to source lightweight parts in the States??
