Talking Be nice to me!

What 'o chaps. Just joined up to see how you lot are doing over there?
It's great to see that you lot seem love LR's as much as we do on this side of the water, although i do feel for you as they are two a penny here so we can pick and choose.
I have been to the States twice and both times bored the wife stupid by counting all the D90's I saw. Cool country and i'm VERY jelous of the climate that keeps the dreaded tin worm at bay!
Have you seen the pictures of the new F**D Bronco that has been modified to look like the new gen. Defender?
What do you think?

Ford will destroy Land Rover the same way they are demolishing Jag. How long do you think XJ production will last? Counting the days before they turn it into a Lincoln Town Car....

I have my worries over the new Bronco also, but I'll wait until they decide what/if will actually be produced. Considering the cross-breeding in the automotive world, it may be the same chassis basis of the next defender too.

However, I disagree that it was made to look like a Defender, or a Hummer or whatever people say. It's pure Bronco, but not many people really remember the original 66-77 version these days. I don't think any Early Broncos ever got to the UK either, as far as I know they were only in the US and Australia in limited numbers.

I see a few of the Lincoln Town Car XJs and XJRs and a lot of the Ford Taurus S Type. Wait a minute.... -you mean those are Jags?

Lol, man. We used to have a lovely old '68 XJ. Wonderful car. And the chassis was to die for. The Prince of Darkness eventually won the battle for our old girl's life, tho.
