1 in 31,217

I found an interesting quote on CNN today from an article about the US population reaching 300 million. Per CNN "there are 237 million vehicles on U.S. roads now compared with just under 100 million 40 years ago.", (almost one car per person) if this is true then there are about 1 Defender per 31,217 vehicles. Now that number may be true if all 7,592 NAS Defender 90 and 110s are still on the road. If there are fewer Defenders on the road due to accidents and rusting away then I estimate about one Defender per 40,000. This may be why I only see one other Defender per month!

Interesting tidbit from CNN. I think there are 5 vehicles in the yard for 4 people. if you are talking strictly NAS trucks those numbers might be off a bit more than that.. consider how many have been burnt exported totalled or butchered up. So there probally are a lot fewer. But consider how many ROW Defenders have gotten im under the radar etc. Might be holding pretty strong accross the board even considering the losses. I wonder how many Defenders are left (NAS).
