Petrolicious has established quite a reputation as a producer of gorgeous videos that focus on rare, exclusive performance machines. That reputation isn't enough to preclude the video junkies to ignore the awesomness that is an old Land Rover on sand dunes, though.
This week, Petrolicious interviewed Pawel Litwinski, a freelance photographer and owner of a clean (ish) Series III Land Rover that sees regular action along the sandy stretches of California's coast. The fascination with going off road has been long in the making, as Litwinski idolized the trucks and four-by-fours that took to the beaches near his childhood home in Coney Island, NY.

What's most interesting about this particular Series III is that it's far from a garage queen. Litwinski regular trots it out on the dunes of Pismo Beach, and as we can see in the video, he has no fear of working the truck hard. It even serves as a sort of photo assistant, in a pinch. And most remarkable of all, Litwinski claims the old Landy "never breaks down."

Take a look at the video as Petrolicious goes off road.

      I loved this. I've seen a few Petrolicious videos, but this is my favorite. It's probably because I can relate to the owner a lot about how he feels about 4x4s. My first car was a simple Suzuki 4x4. I lived on a mountain and often offroaded it with my friends. Sometimes, I'd go alone just for an adventure like this guy. Like this owner stated, these 4x4s aren't fast, but the feeling of them being able to take you anywhere really is something else. Personally, I'd rather have a rugged 4x4 than a fast sports car. 

      I'm also fascinated by the sand dunes in Pismo Beach. I always assumed CA did not allow vehicles on the beach or dunes unless it was in the desert. I'm going to have to check these out some day. 

      This was a great video and really brought back memories but also inspired dreams again.

        Same entirely. I drive Jeeps around, and I could never sell them off. Its such a free feeling, and the best times are when you get an entire bit of wilderness to yourself like the far reaches of Pismo or unknown places in Moab, it makes me wish I could freeze those moments forever.
