Axon’s Automotive Anorak: Celebrating 30 years of the Land Rover Discovery

Land Rover launched its original Discovery 30 years ago at the 1989 IAA Frankfurt Auto Show. I remember the launch of this much-anticipated off-roader very well, being there to witness the grand unveiling on the first Frankfurt Press Day. I returned to take a proper look at the car some hours later once the initial ballyhoo had died down, only to find a gentleman locked inside a Discovery with a small tool kit, taking shavings off the pale blue plastic steering wheel and cutting out tiny sections of seat upholstery!
