Since 2009 the club have been raising money to sponsor the 50th anniversary show car that is in the Dunsfold collection. We have quite a few member now and lots of people enjoy the site and I hope has been of great use to people over the years. I thought as a way of giving something back sponsoring a car in the collection was a nice idea.

Now over the years with lots of kind donations we now have a fund of 750. The Dunsfold collection is now doing a wall of fame for donators of 100,500,1000 and 5000+. It would be great for the club to get gold on the wall of fame so thought a last push would get us up to 1000 so we can make the donation.

Any donations can be made by the donate button by PayPal, or even better so no PayPal fees a bank transfer (PM for details)

The collection is know world wide and has very strong links with land rover, without it this show vehicle would have been crushed. Find out more about the collection at: http://www.dunsfoldcollection.co.uk/

The collection is now looking to have all vehicles in one building where some visits can take place. A donation will help get a roof over the head of the silver 50th and keep it nice.

Some info on the Dunsfold 50th Anniversary vehicle:

VEHICLE SPEC.

THIS 90 WAS BUILT TO COMMEMORATE 50 YEARS OF LAND ROVER IN 1998 AND WAS SHOWN AROUND THE WORLD AT MANY SHOWS. A NEW 90 WAS TAKEN FROM THE PRODUCTION LINE AND STRIPPED OUT. THE BULKHEAD AND CHASSIS WERE PAINTED, NEW UN-PAINTED PANELS WERE TAKEN FROM THE PRESS SHOP AND FITTED. BECAUSE THE SPOT WELDS LOOK UGLY THE SKINS WERE GLUED ON. THIS 90 WAS BUILT IN HOUSE AT LAND ROVERS

This is the wall of fame that Dunsfold are doing. Two 50th owners and forum members are already gold donators for personally donating 1000.

Hello all,

With a very kind anonymous donation we were able to make a donation to Dunsfold at the show. The club will be on the wall of fame as a gold supporter for donating 1000.
Well done to everyone who made a donation.
