FIRST SEEN IN UNCRATE MAGAZINE
Often referred to as the "Soft Dash" Range Rover Classic, this model was the first year with airbags, but the last year for the sought-after boxy design and circle headlights. The LWB stands for Long Wheelbase, which basically means the backseat legroom is King-level. As it's still known today, this SUV was not only as capable as anything offroad with full-time 4WD, it also sat atop the luxury heap — hell, it was the luxury heap 20 years ago. Powered by a 4.2L V8, the LWB Range we acquired is sporting an Avalon Blue exterior, leather everywhere, burled walnut throughout, power everything, and a Harman Kardon sound sytem. When looking for your own, just know you'll probably have to replace the air suspension and a drooping headliner. But also know you'll have the most vintage-looking SUV to ever come with a safety restraint system. Handsome, but safe. Just like what your mom saw in your dad.
If you're interested in buying the Range Rover above, as seen in last year's Issue 00 of Uncrate magazine, get in touch. We got it in Boulder in 2014, and even though it's having its 20th anniversary this year, it's still got less than 90,000 miles on it and drives great. An excellent specimen.

The first of only six made for the D-Type's final racing season, this 1956 Jaguar D-Type Works Long Nose is both exceedingly rare and exceedingly desirable. Built by Jaguar's experimental department, it has both Lucas mechanical fuel injection and an independent, de Dion rear suspension — both novel features for their time — and was first raced in May 1956 and was retired at season's end. It was then bought by a Scottish racing team before passing between a couple other owners — one of which had it restored to factory specifications in 1986 — and is now ready to join your collection.
