Matt Filkins Q&A

How did your passion for Land Rovers start?

Always loved the look and sound of them, got a ride in one as a child, mid-life crises I went out to buy a convertible, no other choice but a 110 ex-army Perentie (canvas roof!)

What was the first Land Rover you owned?

110 Perentie (Ex-Army, Sydney Barracks)

How many Land Rovers have you owned?

Just one.

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

Col. (after my Grandfather Colin, a driver in WWII at just 19).

What is your most memorable Land Rover moment?

First time driving over the mountains on all the back tracks and roads. Rode them on my mountain bike when young, great to go back as a young 40yo.

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

Loved getting the top rack on the frame, though it’s a little high to strap on the kayak!
