Yes, it is that time of year when many of the older Land Rovers begin to stir and get pulled from musty
barns and other storage locations where they have been sleeping through the winter. This event is as
good an excuse as any for you to get your Land Rover stirring and on the road. It will also give you
about six weeks of time to correct all of the major faults that are found with your vehicle so it is fully
ready for the Birthday Party in June!
The Event: For the past thirty five years or so years, local members of OVLR have been irregularly
gathering at various locations for an annual tune up session. It is an opportunity for members whose
mechanical skills may be in need of some practice. There will be members there who are very familiar
in the operation and maintenance of these vehicles there that will be more than happy to help guide you
and explain what you should be doing to keep your vehicle in top shape.
Getting There: 4362 Carp Road, is in Ottawa’s west end formerly West Carleton. Take the 417 to the carp road exit and head north. The entrance to the property is on the right hand side about 13.5 km (8.25 miles for the editor) from the highway. The entrance is a private road and our gracious host is the second property in on the right.
