This 1990 County is my second RR.
The first was a P38 that, while a pleasure to drive, was absurdly prone to failures.
The Classic, on the other hand, is more straightforward and a more fundamentally sound vehicle.
Sure there are niggles here and there, mostly electrical, the Lucas trademark.
The RR Classic has, like many of its owners, an eccentric character; fitted with a factory CD changer but no cup holders or glove box, to give an example.
The styling is iconic and is either immediately recognized or elicits intrigue.
These vehicles often get a bad rap, but with proper care the reliability is relatively high and the driving experience rewarding.

I love the RR classic, when it works. Interior design is in a class of it's own compared to contemporaries. Expect to pay huge annual repair bills regardless of where you get it fixed. Some dealers actually suggest repairs be done elsewhere (refuse to work on them). If you really want one, buy a slightly newer one (93-95) that is a LWB. The more powerful engine is definately worth it!

Its an eye turner go anywhere truck. I can park a mile away from civilization at target and when I come back a town has formed. Sure the tank is a bit old so she has her share of problems but when it runs, it runs better than any other vehicle out there. The toughest part is the constant urge to make that left turn into some park just to go off-roading. My friends call mine "A screaming metal death-trap" but they usually see it when the lucas electrics call uncle. Drop 60$, do the work yourself, and the truck is back in an hour. BTW a radiator cost 500$ brand-new and its an hour job to put it in yourself. BEST 4X4XFAR!
