This was announced 3 months ago. I would assume the first 25 are long since taken. Fortunately it is just the start.

Yeah, they just rebranded themselves as Land Rover Classics. They were/are supposed to offer parts support as well, but I have no idea what that channel might be. I heard that it was through the dealers, but I checked with my local dealer the other day, and no one had a clue...

Land Rover North America is not really Land Rover.... They are special...and they have a special hatred for real Land Rovers.

It does seem that way from the sales guys, but many of the techs have a love of the classics.

Gotcha. If it isn't shiny new off the line, seemingly no interest from sales guys. On the other hand, I was chatting with their sales manager a couple years back and he had gotten his hands on a couple special edition DIIs he was quite proud of and the owner of the dealership was driving a customized ROW defender.
