Introducing my Land rover series III. I think I will start to use this blog as the new diary for her, hope it can be useful for the other landy owner out there…
First of all, here is the picture of her, it is BIG, Long, and have turn radius of tug boat, and please don’t ask about fuel consumption.. :)

Few Notes: As stated above, the CR (compression ratio) is 8:1, very-very low in current standard, it is designed to be able to use low quality of fuel, and it need leaded fuel actually… which this type of fuel is no longer available in Indonesia.
Cost of ownership so far: US$ 5.000
So that’s it for now, will be a lot of update in the future
