From 28th November 2018 to 6th January 2019, Haynes International Motor Museum will be celebrating one of the greatest utility vehicles of all time - the Land Rover.
As well as creating a new, temporary display, the Museum’s Curator, Matt Piper, will be running daily talks at 11:15 and 14:15 (28th Nov – 1st Dec only) celebrating the great affection Land Rover is held in.
“Basic, slow and out of production from 2016, the ‘Landie’ is a true home-grown British classic used on a global basis as, among other things: a farm hand, royal transport, war machine, peace keeper, ambulance, fire engine, load lugger…the list goes on. Launched in 1948, the Land Rover was a child of World War 2 and grew up in austere times. No matter; everyone loved it. We still do. After a 68 year production run and despite being no longer available new, it seems our fondness for the Land Rover will never die. It is hard to think of any other utility vehicle which comes even close to the Land Rover in the way it manages to get the job done without complaining and yet capture our hearts at the same time. Long live the Landie!”
We will also have specific displays in the Museum Shop and Café 750 will have a classic British menu that is just like the marque – predictable and reliable producing quality and tasty food.
