HE may care about it, after all he did ask the question

 

there are many posts about cars on here that no one drives

and who the hell cares what you want

don't read it, it's not like there is much valuable information being exchanged nor limited bandwidth

Air Suspension was absolute crap lived with it for 2 years. By design it is too soft when in highway mode and too firm when in offroad mode. So instead of being a crap ride in both situations at least now my truck is only crap at one. Seems like you know a bit about rovers so I'm sure you've heard about the EAS buddy, designed by a fellow coloradan. That is because it failed *Everytime* I went up above 12,000 ft or temperatures went under -10˚ F. I'm aware that these aren't normal conditions, but being that I live in boulder and ski 30-40 days a season this was quite a big problem. I also fixed the gear ratios when I put in the new diffs so I haven't lost any power by increasing tire size. The only thing that Is worse about the truck is a slight drop in MPG. You wouldn't believe how great the traction is w/ the detroit trutracks, I havn't had the traction control go off since I put it in!

Btw this is my 3rd rover had a '88 and a '95 SWB all of them green.

Saw one of those accelerating in front of me today in Hamburg. First time I saw one in real life, the V8 sounded awesome and it was really understated in grey.

Looks like a decent restoration.  That car was so ahead of it's time.  Good to find an expert to restore, if needed.  Dad, can I borrow the car?

Can't decide whether to liquidate some assets and get the Phantom, or get this Geo Metro I've had my eye on. The only requirement is that it needs to fit my bicycle.
