Been corresponding with Esquire Magazine as they are looking to do a piece on "forbidden cars" that are not importable without some hoops to jump through. They really want to include a an early 80's 90/110, preferably a diesel...something that was once illegal but can now come in under the 25 year rule.
They will travel to you, so the Northeast is preferred...And they aren't interested in a hybrids, etc...they want an authentic UK specimen that was imported - either legally or illegally.
Sounds too genuine to be some kind of DOT undercover sting operation, so if you want your Defender's story told, contact Taylor Adams at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Good luck and keep us all posted...
