Our Picture of the Week, shared on Facebook by ‘Jeans Queen’ Donna Ida Thornton, founder of Donna Ida, shows a postbox outside the trendy restaurant Roka. It has been tagged “Range Rover Street” in black ink and certainly is not an unfair analysis of the sights and sounds of that particular neighbourhood.

Conceived as a car for country gents in the 1950s, the first prototype Land Rover Range Rover was built in 1967 and now, under the ownership of Indian giants Tata, the luxurious vehicle forms part of the offering of what is the UK’s largest carmaker. It is more likely found in urban areas and given its price new starts at £71,000, it is certainly the preserve of Mayfair millionaires rather than Flintshire farmers.

    1. My father had the second privately owned Range Rover in 1969, it cost £1800. If I had kept it it would now be worth over £100k. It was green and had a tan hose out interior, two doors only and not even power steering. Times have changed.

    2. Just to add as I have only just thought of it, on the way home from picking it up it had a puncture. This is a family tradition as every single Land Rover my family has owned from the Series One in 1947 to the last one which was a new Defender bought by me in 1992 has had a puncture on the first day of ownership. Odd but true.
