    Restored a series 3 a few years ago and now have an unnatural addiction to land rovers.

    Just picked up a 1987 110 and I can feel my wallet getting lighter, hands getting dirtier and my mrs getting grumpier already.

    Love it.

    That's a good point. I'll order her something nice from Ebay.

    try overalls first.. then rubber gloves
    Then the manual to fit the cam.
    You don't want her giving you a blank look with the cam.

    Yes it is a mental disorder. Normally this can be remedy by driving and waving at fellow Land Rover Drivers but not Evoque ones as they will phone the police saying they sexual harassment

    Hello and welcome.

    Nope not a mental disorder at all, I consider a trip to Halfords an outing with my carer who has to stop me spending too much, my eBay an Amazon activity is logged and must be verified by said carer before order is placed, I consider welding burns as a form of therapy and my carer would be overwhelmed if I were in the house too much, nope, still not a mental disorder :p:p

    Hi and welcome.

    It is a condition that cannot be cured so has to be fed regularly with Land Rover therapy.o_O:D

    It’s all about the company you keep. If you are the sane one in an asylum, you are the one disordered in comparison to everybody else. It’s relative - as is everything :D

    Green oval syndrome is how many end up here - to hide their fix behind an avatar and handle that the misses won’t find out. If your nuts but surrounded by other like minded nutters then you are in fact normal.

    Suffer from insanity, certainly not ; I enjoy every minute of it :)

    It's only a mental problem if you keep cleaning it.....or clean it at all actually. They go well with a dog and several bits of straw.

    Cow sh*te gives it the authentic LR smell and savage dog hair adds to the experience.

    ^^^this guy^^^ is green-oval syndrome No.1 :D:):):)
