This FAQ is the work of a number of people who have assisted
in its creation over the past several years. Back around 1991,
TerriAnn Wakeman penned a couple of messages on the British
Cars mailing list. These messages were taken by Lawrence
Buja and combined into the first "FAQ" for Land Rovers sometime
in 1991. By 1992, Dixon Kenner was trying to unstick seized pistons
in his Green Beastie and started to have some thoughts on Land-Rover
maintenance, or the lack thereof.
In early 1993 he produced the first definitive form of the FAQ
as a series of regular messages to Bill Caloccia's Land-Rover
mailing list. By July of 1993, Greg Hiner had made this text
version available as part of the RoverWeb.
In July of 1994, Ben Smith and Dixon Kenner were handed the RoverWeb and
Dixon took direct control of the FAQ. Several changes then occurred.
Ben Smith ported the FAQ into html. With Dixon's help, Ben also
developed the first version of the Ottawa
Valley Land Rovers web site. While the FAQ originally resided
within the OVLR site, but was later moved to its own directory
structure to ease maintenance and enhancement as the three sites
continued to grow.
