And there's more...

In the same 1977 magazine, and in the same "Cars you won't see at Earls Court" article, the following from Motor's Midlands Editor, Philip Turner:

"Range Rover for the Masses*

Just think what a splendid car a junior Range Rover would be? Either as main family transport - for thanks to its shrinking it would no longer have that rather massive presence which makes the normal Range Rover a rather awkward shopping car - or as a second car to be used for all weekend and holiday activities. I know who's first in the queue for one. Me."

He only had to wait twenty years, but a few manufacturers other than Land-Rover had got there first...

*Reminds me of George Bishop's splendid comment on the Porsche 924:

"If this is a Porsche for the masses, then say a few masses for me."
