    First Range Rover

    Here it is... 1969.
    Snapped this photo of it in the Heritage Motor Center in Gaydon (https://www.google.com/maps/@52.1876881,-1.4770749,15z), Warwickshire.
    It's an amazing museum (of essential Leyland products). They had the winning Monte Carlo Minis and countless other cars (maybe 200), many famous.
    Not often visited but worth the drop in when we were driving from Leeds to Goodwood.

    The first Range Rover was a little worn inside as it had obviously be used.
    Also included is a shot of the 2012 Land Rover used in the Bond movie "Skyfall."
