1993/1994 Car and Truck Magazine Defender Accolades

Does anyone know of the magazines in which the Defender 90 and/or 110 were awarded accolades such as Vehicle / Truck / Four Wheeler / SUV (?) of the year?

I haven't collected comic books since I was much younger, but I'd really like to try to find and buy one of the original magazines in which the Defenders were written up for the US market.

I've seen maybe:

Four Wheeler Magazine's Vehicle of the Year
Motor Trend
Car and Driver

I don't have the accolades, but I have a PDF of the original Car & Driver review.

(Nothing like not answering your question and providing you with something you didn't ask for..)

Thanks Jerod! Cool read! That's the sort of thing I was looking for.

Never realized they did a dB test, or that rear lamp guards were a $180 option!

I'll have to save that PDF before Galpin takes it down.

Plus Jerod, those pics kinda reminded me of your truck.

Totally looks like my truck. Of course I can't remember what it looks like not on jack-stands. Soon, very soon.

I remember the trail-review that 4wd or Four Wheeler did. They went on some local trail, got stuck really bad and said "Oh yeah, it has open lockers".

Last year Motor Trend did a top 100 dream cars of all time and the Defender came in something like 64th.

And let's not forget the list that GQ did a year or two of "Coolest cars you will never own".

NAS 110 was #1 on the list.
