The bad news is that a 25-year old Freelander will be in lousy shape. And it will be a 25-year old Freelander. But if that's what you love and that's what you want then go for it. There's no accounting for taste. For reasons I don't understand I still think about buying a P38 sometimes. It's a foolish idea, but something about them appeals to me.
I want a P38. If I find a good example I'm going to try to own it. I have a project right now that's got to be done or close to done before I can do it. I've always liked them. But it would have to be a GEMS truck. Probably try to find a speacial edition like a Callaway.
