The Billing 2002 Show

As you can see, it was that 'Billing' time again.
As always, the 3 days of the Billing show brought together many thousands of Land Rover enthusiasts from all over the world, and the Spirit of Billing lives again until next year.

The Show must go on.

As usual we took a very wide range of our V8 products & vehicles, many you can see below. In addition to this, we had over 40 engines on view including 5.0 and 5.3 Litre variants, and 3 further static displays including a 4.0 engine complete and running in our test bed, also a very stunning (exploded view) V8 engine.

Here we have just a few engines 4.0 and 4.6 short and long. Also our unique engine stand.

Rockers under the rocker cover, and the push rods etc, that can be seen a lot more easily.

This 1972 Range Rover is a wonderful example of how they can look if restored properly. This one is also going to be LPG converted at RPi by the customer. Soon to have his own page, watch this space.
