1971 Land Rover

New England field notes from Jarrod McCabe
 "Here’s a man who drives his truck.
’71 Land Rover found in Littleton NH.
Owner, Chris Komar.has a 98 drivetrain in it.
The power is diesel and gets damn good mileage compared what I’ve heard these things normally get.
We talked quite a bit about how he keeps the rust off while driving it year round in New Hampshire. 
He keeps notes on his windshield and you’ll see the names scratched into the hood of people he’s met out four-wheeling."--JM
