A series that documents one man’s intimate relationship with vehicle, “Grover” who’s the Wall-e of Land Rovers.

Nobody has ever loved her more than her owner, me, Ben Ellis. In this multipart adventure I’ll take you on a journey into the initial design, the technical engineering, as well as give you a very up-close and personal look at the unique one-of-a kind relationship between a Land Rover and it’s human via my own personal experience. I’ve got a long history with the brand, I owned an oil leaking ’69 Series II, directed the board of a multi-state Land Rover club, I even relocated my life, including a reluctant wife, across the country for my dream job of working at Land Rover. Only to understand the meaning of “never meet your heroes”…

After three hard years, losing my marriage and a much desired promotion, I had had enough and heartbreakingly left my job at Land Rover. But no matter how many times she breaks your heart, I just keep coming back for more. I tried to move on, I really did, met a new job girlfriend at Virgin Hyperloop One but the truth is, I never stopped loving her. Now I’m traveling around to tell the story of a car lover, diving into all the little things about cars that make their owner’s heart’s skip a beat. Because deep down we all know, it’s never “just” a car.
