    Nah, you two need to keep on trucking baby!!
    I love mine to bits and enjoy bombing down the motorway at 70 chomping miles. It rolled into 219,000mls this evening. :cool:

    We will continue when she comes home :D However, I am looking at a Series III , to keep her company. Although my head is saying buy a Defender, not a Series.
    Whatever happens, she's only in to get some tlc. A short time at the spa, a deep tissue massage, pedicure, indian head massage, soft pillows, soothing music, etc ;)

    I know. I even wandered into the Series, and the Defender sectioms to see if they could shed light.
    It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't know a guy with several of each for sale

    Therein lies a problem. These are vehicles that will be built to spec. They sit in 'save me' condition until someone picks one. Then he gets to work , doing a Cinderella transformation.
    Although I know how both drive. I've been driving them for decades. I even learned in a Series III. Then stared with longing, when the first 'Defender' came into the MT shed.

    There's two little plastic lugs that hold the clips that the self tappers screw into. Them.

    Nah. Even if they didn't look like something a five year old drew, I want something with character. Something that speaks to me. Modern cars don't do that :(

    Wait for the new INEOS Grenadier now that INEOS have won the court case where JLR tried to stop them.

    I hear you there, plastic pretender!!
    That'll be a real challenge for land-rover to compete with a more potential vehicle.

    That's what they would say about an 80 year old cowboy, weather beaten, can hardly walk and stinks of piss. Plenty of character.:p:p:p

    Just looked that one up. Actually not bad looking, better that the soft porn Defender that JLR are pushing.
