My Next Shooting Vehicle???

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Now most members know that I drive a Discovery Two which I have had from new fourteen years ago and completed 188K miles which has just past its MOT for another pigeon shooting season. The only problem is a replacement, so Ive listed a few options, not sure the farmers will be pleased!!!!

The bottom picture is the one in my opinion.

Just don't be tempted by a Toyota PU with a turret on the back

Go wash your mouth out !!

The second down is attractive because it appears to have the standard pool of oil beneath it, so a genuine Land Rover.  A big mans Meccano set, you will never have to buy another vehicle because you can always take 'em apart and put a new part on.  The Disco 2 is a good motor but like the Classic Range Rover, once they start to rot your done for.

Ten out of ten for observation, when I blanked the photographers name I thought it looked like a oil slick. My son keeps sending me pictures of Disco Two's  for sale so I can put one in stock. He also runs a Disco Two V8 which he says I can use for Shooting but all my pension would go in petrol.

Put it on LPG, nothing beats being pulled by a V8.    3.9 in my Landie and she does on average about 32mpg money wise. I'm lucky I have an LPG outlet just 3 miles away and on route to one of my farms.

The French farmers car, got France moving after the war.

Certainly a car designed to a brief that it managed to meet for many years. Only three wheel nuts because it's all it needed. 

The fold back soft top and removable picnic come hide seats could be a great bit of kit for pc.

Was asked to provide the entertainment - clay pigeon shooting - at the 2CV Owners Club "do" at the nearby Bicton Arena. Those  cars do things and go places that you simply wouldn't credit.

I really liked the 2CV - their main problem today is safety, they fold up really easily 😣

Built for French farmers, no kidding.

2CVs were amazingly capable on the southern fringes of the Sahara, in their heyday in the 1970s.    

The French certainly knew how to design small cars for rough roads.   Ditchman might perhaps remember seeing the nuns in the remote areas of Uganda with their Roho (Renault 4) models.   Those ladies didn't stop at anything (driving-wise).

i believe when it was designed....it was tested infront of dealers and it was driven across a ploughed field and fast across cobbles with a basket of chicken eggs in the back ....and none were broken..
