Host Rufus Hound and his guests go in search of the top car for rural living. Naturalist Nick Baker test drives the first Land Rover ever made to get a better idea of its legendary status. The vehicle became an icon of British motoring, despite having its roots in America. Plus, Tim Shaw suggests the Triumph Spitfire as ideal for summery country lanes and John Burton extols the virtues of the roomy Jaguar Mk 2. Rufus also considers the Ford Granada. With loads of room and plenty of power, it has everything a person would need in a country motor - and all with a bit of '70s style.
