Pieter Hugo Q&A

How did your passion for Land Rovers start?

My dad bought his first Land Rover in 1955 – brand new. Used him on the farm in the Karoo – even to plough! Replaced in in 1965 with a brand new diesel Landy. I learn to dive in the 1st Landy and one day had to drive him out to the farm – 70 kilometer dirt road as my Dad had two cars in town, and I was only in Standard 1 – nowadays grade 3 and not even 10 years old!

What was the first Land Rover you owned?

My 2007 Freelander 2 SE is my first Landy

How many Land Rovers have you owned?

Still only the Freelander 2

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

The Freelander’s name is “Frikkie”

What is your most memorable Land Rover moment?

Driving up and down Sani Pass as if it is a tar road and our trip through Botswana and then back via Kang, Hukuntsi, Kaa to Nossob in the Kgalagadi was unbelievable.

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

I fiited a Front Runner roof rack with 8 mounting points and Frikkie really looks “cool” with the roof rack and all the camping goodies on top.

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

I can not help to smile each time I go into the garage (that needs the guys from garage door repair cypress to fix some tweeks) and see Frikkie. Everybody notice Frikkie – he shows a “presence” wherever he goes!
