    Is this why JLR are dropping Land Rover?

    Here's another aspect... A few years back, I read an article wherein Land Rover was said to be "racist" and perpetuating the "Colonial" idea. The article even quoted something from LR's heritage that was used in advertising - it said something like "in several parts of the world, the Land...

    Is this the First RTT?

    Don't buy it... it's that would be more of an RV. A RTT goes on TOP of the vehicle or trailer, not just "above the wheels". If that were the case, I could say the tub of my Rover is a RTT since it's above the wheels... 🤣😂

    Is this the First RTT?

    But... that's a chuck wagon, not a RTT.

    Is this the First RTT?

    Nope. One appeared in the January 1937 issue of Popular Science, called the Topo-tent. There is also a patent from 1929.

    Land Rover ideas for Jeeps

    I know of someone getting ready to convert a 1951 LR SI to an EV, base cost is $40K. If they add all the other things he wants add - they aren't even close to original spec, such as power steering and AC - it will be closer to $70-$80K. Why ruin a classic....

    2020 Land Rover Defender is a Nightmare

    ROTFLMAO!!! Amongst my 4x4 friends, mainly Rovers, there is a running joke - "Toyotas, the terrorists ride". There are several articles out there, and IIRC a Governmental investigation in re the Taliban's love of the Toyota.

    2020 Land Rover Defender is a Nightmare

    Exactly... it's just a status symbol, another high-end soccer mom SUV. Doesn't mater how much spin LR tries to put on it,it is what it is. For that money I would much rather have an actual, original Defender.

    Questions: Land Rover Defender 110 - 1991 - 111k miles

    Make absolutely sure the title is clear and the numbers match. There have been some shipped to the US over the years that have had fake/fraudulent numbers attached so they could be imported in. They also tend to hold their value and increase if it is decently maintained. Parts are not...

    Vintage-ish military bags make great storage containers and are fairly cheap. The last two pics are of Polish bread bags I got recently - 4 for $10, but shipping was $10. They don't look it, but they are very heavy duty and will work great for various items.

    2020 Land Rover Defender is a Nightmare

    Never understood the desire to purchase/own one of these new "defenders". For the money a person can have a really nice original version.

    Sooo Many Used Rovers

    I have a '63 - it has greatly appreciated in value. It isn't all that expensive to maintain, especially when compared to more modern vehicles. As to Toys... they are the vehicle of choice for terrorists. ROTFL!!!!

    Sooo Many Used Rovers

    True not true!!! LOL Have you seen the prices many of the old Series and Defender Rovers are getting on the various auction sites, such as bringatrailer? I have now been offered 6x's the amount I paid for my '63 IIa 88 Station Wagon and I'm not completely done with the rebuild.
