The Land Rover Discovery has completed 170,000 miles.
I purchased this vehicle in November of 1997 at the Land Rover Dealer in Nashville, TN. I drove the Discovery until the summer of 2003 when, with about 100,000 miles on the odometer, I sold it to a buddy in Lebanon, MO. He drove it for a year or so and sold it to a fellow in Marshfield, MO. From time to time I would see the Rover, mostly around town and occasionally on I 44 between Springfield and Marshfield. In the spring of 2007 I tracked down the owner and asked if he would consider selling the Discovery back to me. A few weeks went by and we negotiated a deal. In April of 2007 the Discovery came home. My hopes are to keep the truck for as long as my pocketbook will allow. I’d eventually like to retire it from daily driver status and only drive it when we camp or want to do some light off-roading. The Rover needs some work and an engine rebuild will be in its future. For now it starts and runs well enough to get me where I need to go. KNOCK WOOD!
