John Carroll has been a full-time motoring journalist since 1989 and has worked on numerous magazines in that time, including spells editing Windscreen (the magazine of the Military Vehicle Trust) and Classic Military Vehicle magazines. He was also the editor of Classic Land Rover Magazine for many years. He is a widely published author with more than 20 automotive books to his credit. He bought his second Land Rover, a 1957 Series One 88in that required a full rebuild, for £300 in 1989 and still has it. It has now been joined by a 1953 80in, which also cost £300 and needed a full rebuild. John says he cannot put a price on the fun and numerous experiences that these two old Land Rovers have brought him.
