To quote the Jalopnik post:
63 years ago today, at an auto show in Amsterdam, the world first met the Land Rover. The rugged British made utility vehicle would go on to earn a reputation for its toughness during cross continental torture tests as well as day to day use. While they are often thought of as exotic exploration vehicles, Land Rovers were originally built with a more practical purpose in mind.
