I am after any magzine articles (LR World, LR International etc) when the 50th was launched.

Does anyone know which "back issues" printed such?

The answer to your question should be sit down and flick through old mags like i did after buying mine .....and remembered reading the article where it said that the standard off the forecourt model was gutless for a v8 - if only i'd known then that i'd own one in the future.Otherwise if you arent as sad as me and dont have the complete back catalogue of LRO then here are some that i have found(having just had another flick through !! ) which are of the 50th and some related pieces of possible interest.

LRO March 1998 pg76 NAS 90 article
" Issue 6 1998 50 years special edition(came with different cover pics- one of 50th Defender- no i havent got it) pg 17
July(issue 8)1998 Special V8 90 article not 50th but interesting
January 1999 Pg90 Best article ive found even though the vehicle was said to be disappointing...then go to pg 96

Dont think there was much else until Land Rover World article with James' pride and joy October 2005

Hope this helps

Hi,

Ok, Sorted throught my collection and found it, was in the wrong box. Its in Feb 99 Car magazine. It features GB 005 and its testing it and a Jepp and comparing them.

Also there is a half page bit on the Defender 50th in July 2000 LROi.

Anyone else know of any more?

Best regards
