Speaking about Landy’s creation, Veronica has said:
“Wherever I went, I noticed Land Rovers at work. Capturing this sense of activity and adventure, I began to weave a world around two old working Land Rovers in my neighbourhood. The stories are based on Landy and Fender and their energetic young owners, Jack and Dan.”
Landy is actually based on a genuine 1956 Land Rover Series 1 with the licence plate UTT 739, and the author’s personal website has a page dedicated to the history of the 4x4.
We’ve embedded the video below so you can take a look, and it ends with a nice song that leads nicely into the second story of the series.
