By now you have probably caught wind of the big news this week. Mercedes-Benz is going to produce a pickup. These teaser releases are effective for wetting appetites, but frustratingly short on specifics.

There had been some scuttlebutt about a Benz pickup last year, but it wasn’t until now… read more »For Sale: 1997 Defender Beach Runner
This 1997 Defender 110 started its life as a 90. In 2013 Copley Motors outside of Boston, MA performed a frame off resto/mod and transformed the 90 into a 110 Beach Runner.

This truck was then stripped back down to the galvanized frame and rebuilt using only Land Rover OEM parts, from the… read more »Overland Expo 2016 Embraced by the East Coast

Aimed at the off-road enthusiast, that’s me, I assumed it would have a few nice bells and whistles, but admit I didn’t expect such a comprehensive navigational system.
