Eventually, his perseverance paid off and we ended up with this cute little mini ‘Ciggy’, complete with fold down windscreen, bonnet mounted wheel (sadly not the delux bonnet though) and a tow hook on the back.
Mud being Mud wasn’t satisfied with just the Landy and very soon we had a Sankey trailer to go with it, oh and the spare tyre had disappeared from the bonnet by this point.
Now as all those of us who own one are aware, one of the key advantages to taking on an old Landy is its’ ability to morph into a completely different vehicle with minimum effort, in a matter of hours. Annie, for example, drove down to Daventry last year wearing a Truck Cab and when Mud left there a mere 2 hours or so later, she was proudly sporting a hardtop, carrying the truck cab in her pick up bed – couldn’t do that with a modern, so called, ‘eco’ car.
Finally we ended up with a Series 2 SWB in ‘Bronze’ Green (well it was the closest shade of Lego bricks we had to the colour – which isn’t that close at all, if I’m honest) with a white hard top and a thoroughly happy Mud.EDIT 30th June 2013:
When I originally did this post in March of this year, I chose to write about the little green Lego Series 2 that Mud had built. He had also built a red 109″ Series 2 (should have been built with blue bricks, if you ask me) but he wasn’t overly happy with the finished look and so I didn’t include it.
However, he has found a picture of the two Lego Land Rovers together in which the red one looks acceptable (if you ignore the colour that is) and so here we have it (drum roll please) designed and built by Mud4fun.com, a pair of Series 2 Lego Land Rovers:
