Finnegan Mcgrath Q&A

How did your passion for Land Rovers start?

My first word was “car”, and ever since I’ve had an appreciation for cars, particularly classics. I was first drawn to land rover’s no-nonsense looks of the series/defenders. The more I read and learnt about them and the incredible capabilities , the more I had to have one.

What was the first Land Rover you owned?

1967 Land Rover series 2a

How many Land Rovers have you owned?

Only the one (I’m only 18!)

Do your Land Rovers have a name? If so, what is the name?

Paddington, named after Paddington bear.

What is your most memorable Land Rover moment?

When I bought the car, I had to drive it home from the neighbouring border of NSW along the highway. I quickly learnt that doing 70 kph in a 110 zone on a 4 lane highway would not be appreciated by the other motorists. All my friend and I could do was kill ourselves laughing as various drivers expressed there annoyance with there horns and various hand gestures. This was when Paddington’s charm became apparent.

What is your favourite accessory on your Land Rover and why?

I added leather hood straps to the bonnet, really cool.

Complete the sentence: My Land Rover has a Soul because...

Paddington’s not perfect and he probably never will be, but every him, I have a big smile on my face.
