    Apparently, Buying a Car is Difficult...

    I went to buy a '77 Alfa Romeo. The moron sales guy wouldn't let me test drive it. so I got a '77 Lancia Scorpion. About 2 weeks later I took my sister to the Alfa dealer. Another sales guy walks over. I could see the moron sales guy in the corner. I loudly asked if we'd be allowed to test...

    This happened to my 01 D2 I used to have about 60 miles north of I-80 in Nevada. Ring blew off (factory air bags). We couldn't get it on and made one out of 4 hose clamps.

    I must soon quit the scene

    You should buy a mortuary. After dealing with dead Land Rovers it should be a shoe in. Just don't sell body parts.

    4HP24 Gearbox Failure

    If it's the P-38 I just had mine go out and had it rebuilt. I pulled into a driveway and when I put it in reverse to back out I heard a bang.

    Do you think AAA knows about Rovers?

    Yeah I blew a transmission line, told the driver to take it to the dealer in San Rafael. He ignored me and took me to a little specialist shop with an English dude who owned it. I'm sure I got off way cheaper than the dealer.

When she got up the next morning and went out she could see the driver had scraped the passenger side of...
