Cool film as usually.. Just very annoyed about this turtle wax washing scene we found in each new film..

I just joined the site recently but I don’t see any other real advertising on the site and certainly no annoying pop ups.

Obviously the site has to generate income somehow if they are going to keep it going. A little turtle wax washing never hurt anything. Sure we all notice it, but it doesn’t detract from the story and frankly, seeing a beautiful car washed is nice. It’s not like these are feature films being funded by studios, the site needs to make money on these little videos. And frankly, there’s more product placement in most film and television these days anyway.

These classic Range Rovers have aged really nicely! In fact, I’m already looking for one on local ads 🙂

Great video Petrolicious!

Cool film but the title should be Royal Rangie. They are never colloquially referred to as Rovers in the U.K.

What a lovely job on the restoration! There is something undeniably elegant about the Range Rover Classic.

Great to hear a south Birmingham accent (West Heath to be precise), this place is just around the corner from me and I didn’t even know it was there!

Edit: Actually, it looks like it’s based in Redditch a few miles away.. just by where I work, will have to pop in and have a look!

Is this the same Range Rover that was featured on the early Top Gear episode?

What a car. Dare I say this is probably one of the single greatest classic Rovers in existence? The livery is pure perfection representing the epitome of what a Range Rover should be, rugged British Green on the outside, tan leather on the inside. You can just imagine Her Majesty cruising through the mud and streams of Balmoral in this, what a history. Well done to this chap for restoring this amazing machine, and giving it the love and attention it deserved.

Enjoyed the clip on the Range Rover. Regardless of the vehicle the film is always Very tasteful. Unlike the in your face product placement in the last little while. I have nothing against turtles or their wax but a little more tack in placement is in order to keep the Petrolicious’ Integrity intact. I know the films are not cheap to produce and sponsorship becomes necessary to keep on keeping on, but class it up a little. This isn’t HotRod magazine. I have plenty of that in my garage.

I love this. Beautiful video and the vehicle itself is so classically tasteful and desirable. I’ve got an 80 series Land Crusier and it just reminds me that these sorts of cars are bound to exit the other side of their status as mere transportation and emerge as icons of their era. I need to take better care of mine and start reversing some of the signs of aging.

Always the greatest way to kick off the day. Kinda loving the two door rovers now, funny how a car you never looked at before you can lust after. One of the great things about this website is how every Tuesday I lean something new!
Great job and the new camera angles with the drone are being well used!
