    Hello To All
    I'm Michael. a Medically Disabled and retired Former Fire Officer. I survived x3 Serious Brain Haemorraghes not all at the same occasion. I've also suirvived a number of mini strokes (TiA's) since and up to current age almost the BIG 60. My illnesses began completely out of the blue when I was 27. Young? perhaps not as many at this age, however, there are numerous data subjects opf chidren in the womb!! Sop, the myth of it only happening to 'older folks, is just not true entirely.
    I began driving Land Rovers when I let the Fire Service aged 33. I bought a MarkI Disco. I ran this for 12 years and changed to a Rangerover P38a which is still my vehicle and is now 19 years old. Its a Love Hate affair as I'm sure many of you will echo and empathise! But still we persevere illuding ourselves that opnce fixed it will run forever, don't we? well at least I do. Looking forwards to reading and writing on the columns etc. Cheers!

    Welcome!
    We like P38 people here. Well, all of us fellow P38 owners/sufferers do (misery loves company, so they say). Ha! Ha!
    Luckily there is no Evoque (e-joke) or Velar section. The closest we have to that sort of hairdresser car kind of thing is the "Gaylanders". ;)
    But they are nice folk too! We all have a grand time with banter and inter-species rivalry on here.
    Even the Tratter-ers are great folks. :D
    Stay away from Anything goes until you get the hang of the place or already have an asbestos skin. ;-)
