How did your passion for Land Rovers start?
Through the voluntary rescue organization, the Dublin Civil Defence.
What was the first Land Rover you owned?
The one I currently own is my first experience in driving and owning a Landy! It’s a 2003 110 DCPU TD5. I didn’t even know what that whacky extra gear lever was for when I first owned it. That transfer box has come in mighty handy since…
How many Land Rovers have you owned?
Still on the first.
Do your Land Rovers have a name? If so, what is the name?
110 DCPU – ‘Sieux’
What is your most memorable Land Rover moment?
It simply cannot be brought down to one, wherever I go with it is worth remembering. Any trips that I make, any odd place I end up, it’s all thanks to my very capable brute of a truck!
What is your favourite accessory on your Land Rover and why?
The storage box that fits in between the arches of the tub, myself and the father custom made it to fit flush into the pickup area as a hide-away for valuables, as the DCPU lacks any hiding spots! It’s just better that we made it to our liking, and it’s extremely practical even if it sacrifices the unused load space.
Complete the sentence: My Land Rover has a Soul because…
Sieux has a soul because she makes me smile, she makes me furious, she makes me laugh, but she’ll always give me that giddy feeling when everything’s working right, or when storming up a mountain-side, growling in delight to be conquering places where vehicles do not belong. Not once have I ever walked away without glancing back as I go, that alone tells me that I own the right vehicle.. Everything right about Sieux, is everything I could’ve dreamed of.
