It's an easy error to make - momentarily forgetting that you're not driving your Land Rover today.

He MAY just get away with it!!

It ain't funny, THAT'S MY DREAM CAR!! Perhaps I'll get it cheap on Ebay or Gumtree!
Actually looking at the photo, if he didn't run the engine he MAY just get away with it if he washes everything down, particularly if it's just cleanish fresh water!!
