Tristan Aldrich Q&A

How did your passion for Land Rovers start?

I grew up with landrover’s on top of the Pennines in the north east of England, my parents have had landrovers as long as I can remember for towing the horses and various farm animals around!! It was just natural that my obsession would grow from there!!

What was the first Land Rover you owned?

My first landrover that I owned myself I still have, my red 1965 series 2a truck cab, I bought it when I was 23 and rebuilt it with my dad and haven been ablet to let go of it!!

How many Land Rovers have you owned?

I have owned 4 and still have 3 of the 4!! One was too far gone to be saved but sacrificed its self to help the others!!

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

Yes they all have names! SPY is the red 65 truck cab Dozy in the green 65 soft top Hercules is the 63 Forward control

What is your most memorable Land Rover moment?

My most memorable moment has to be with SPY once we got him running for the first time, he was a project my dad and I have been working on on and off for a while!

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

Mainly they are all origional I haven’t changed them too much, although I think the Union Jack paint job on SPY’s roof is quite the talking point, especially here in the states!!
