Number of previous owners ?

Post by CompoSimmonite » Sat Nov 03, 2012 10:30 am

I've just received the V5 for my Marksman I bought the other week (DVLA were fast !)
It had had 12 previous owners. :shock:
Anyone beat that ?

What's the Reg? I'll tell you if I have owned it ;) :lol: yep these are bought by people who like the idea if a jeep but don't like the 1960's ride and hsndling, so quite a few have a lot of owners :hello:

Reg is J889 RVV. Around here the Chrysler dealer had J33 P** reg's for Jeep customers so reckon the original Mahindra dealer tried the same with J889 and attachment bolts to make the 8 look like E :banghead:
I've had 5 x Series Land Rovers and a Jeep CJ5 so know what to expect with the ride. Looking through the paperwork the previous owner gave me is a receipt from 1997 where the owner at the time did a straight swop for a 2 year old Fiat Cinquecento. bet the ride was a shock to them !

Mines had one owner from new in 91, A poor misguided suffolk lad with more money than sence. :no:
The journey isn't about departing in a well preserved body - but rather to skid in sideways - totally worn out - shouting HOLY SHIT WHAT A RIDE!!!!

I personaly don't know anyone who was daft enough to buy one from new, (but they all were new at one time), :scratch:

JC of 4x4 mag fame had his from very early on,
Alan has been a devotee for more years than we like to remember and is well on the road to having a New one when the rebuild and new body is complete.

Apart from that, unless somebody knows different and hasn't already been locked away in some insane asylum somewhere, I'm probably the one the men in white coats are still looking for. :lol:

I bought mine new in July 1990 and still got it locked up in the garage.
It has 27000 miles on the clock and it looks better now that when new
