Last week, our Land Rover Experience team gave a loyal customer the VIP treatment celebrating a special birthday in some style.
For most colleagues working in Block One back on 12th August 1981, it was just another Wednesday. However, to one Land Rover super fan, this was a day to remember and to be celebrated.
Back in 1981 we were busy building Range Rovers and Land Rover Series 3’s. One of these Series 3’s would somehow work its way back to Solihull last week to celebrate its birthday in style.
Five years ago, Darren Hilburn, an IT Consultant who lives in Kent purchased his pride a joy – a cream Land Rover Series 3. Since then, it’s become a cherished and loved member of the Hilburn family.
40 years to the day, Darren and his wife Heidi drove their Series 3 back to Solihull to celebrate it’s birthday in style.
The Land Rover Experience team gave Darren an experience he’ll remember for life, taking on the famous Jungle Track in a modern embodiment of the Series 3, a new Land Rover Defender 110.
Land Rover Experience Instructor Dave Allen gave Darren and Heidi the VIP treatment during their visit. Dave commented, “It’s always a proud moment to watch avid fans and customers bring their cars back to where they were built. Its like retracing the steps of a loved family member.”
From all of us at Solihull, welcome back to Solihull Darren, Heidi and your Series 3.
