Series 3 Land Rover
Classic Land Rover Drivers'
Brazilians do not always get a chance to enjoy cold weather. So, since it is winter there at the moment, a group of Land Rover Series owners got together for a pic-nic at the top of one of the highest mountains of the Bocaina Chain. Located in between Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, it made it possible for Series I, Series II and Series III Land Rover owners from both cities to get together.
They climbed a total of 2000 meters, taking with them a selection of cheese, wine and cold cuts for a night pic-nic. The Series Land Rovers performed well, with only minor glitches.
The group plans to get together for other trips, the only rule to join being that your Land Rover must be more than 20 years old. The club, which is still being formed, has the support of Landscape and LandRio, the two Land Rover dealers in Rio de Janeiro.
Thanks to Roberto Hirth for the information and photos. Roberto's Series I Land Rover projects featured on our April 2003 USA homepage.
