    Warning!

    They are life changing. I have never fought with my wife as much as I did when I first got my Rover and started customizing it.

    I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I went for a test drive and checked it out. She looks pretty straight. Never been off-road, and all the maintenance has been done at the local dealer, so they've got all the records. I'm kinda stoked on that. Pretty high km's but she's in good shape. I'm already saving up to replace the head gaskets (I've done a fair bit of reading). But I'm 99.8% certain that this is THE one for me. I'm delirious with excitement.

    That would be awesome! Here in Indiana, they only have Bud. You know why Bud has so many Clydesdales? They are the only horses that can generate enough to fill their bottles!

    Yummmmm! Drink up!

    I grew up in Buffalo, NY, spent all of my summers until I was about 40 at our beach house in the Township of Ft. Erie, 9 mi. from Buffalo on the Canadian side. Drank lots of OV Spilts, Molson Golden, Extra Stock, Export, and Labatt's Blue. It's all the best there is. Beats a Heineken or real Beck's anytime.
