The late, great motoring hack Russell Bulgin argued long and hard about classic cars. He though they were uniformly rubbish and I disagreed. Neither of us were right of course, but classic cars do bring their own set of challenges to mechanics and drivers. From the Seventies back, cars simply weren’t as reliable, or as safe and required regular and quite specialist servicing. Back then, car makers didn’t know (or care) as much about longevity, combustion efficiency, low-friction coatings and drivetrain design, safety structures, steering and suspension geometry, braking, or corrosion protection. Oils and lubricants, friction linings, electrical connections, tyres and even the fuels you put in the tank, simply weren’t as good as todays.
Automakers are gearing up for tough new vehicle emissions rules and policies favoring electric vehicles if Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden wins the White House. Biden and U.S. President Donald Trump both need the votes of auto workers in Midwestern swing states such as Michigan and Ohio, and both say they want automakers to create more auto jobs in the United States, rather than Mexico or China.

Not every Range Rover was built with luxury in mind. For decades, the ultimate go-anywhere vehicle has been the de facto choice for British royalty but some versions were destined for more practical purposes.

The first vehicle to travel the length of the Americas in 1972, the car chosen as the Popemobile when the supreme pontiff visited the UK in 1982, no other manufacturer could match such versatility. Last week, Land Rover celebrated the 50th anniversary of its iconic four-wheel drive with a celebratory ‘drive-past’ at Goodwood. The cavalcade included some of the most important Range Rovers to roll off the production line in Solihull since the very first example in 1970.
