Love Petrolicious. Not sure if it's been posted yet.

Yep. Not sure about the reliable, cheap part though.

Chicky had a sweet ass too.

Not sure I like the idea of being in Mexico with an open top and door that can't lock....

Those guys were in the ROVERS mag a couple of months ago. I'm still confused why they don't have a tire carrier. They both have Instagram accounts. We have a dedicated thread somewhere around here.

That was really well done and I thought the guy narrating had some really good points. I think most of us that have Land Rovers can relate to a lot of what he was saying. The simplicity of the car and how it results in a yearning to get out there and explore. I know some people say Land Rovers aren't reliable at all and I know why they say that because let's face it they are prone to problems. That being said I think that is different than reliable. Yes my Defender has needed a lot of work and TLC and upkeep but it has never failed me. It gets me where I want to go and back. At the end of the day what more could you ask for.

Real cool piece, great footage and makes me want to get down to South America and do some exploring!

It's Mexico, trust me it was stolen. That and it looks like their rear speaker boxes were nicked too. Bet they would take the NAS roll cage if it wasn't bolted down ;-)

He doesnt have door cards or dash panel vent trim either. Maybe he's got the tire carrier, speaker boxes and those in a warehouse here in NOLA.

That happened to Sam Simpson from Houston. We were at some Mayan ruins in Orange Walk and someone reached into his 90 and swiped his winch kit which was in a small duffel strapped under his seat. They cut the strap.

Beautiful video. Naive as hell, but beautiful nonetheless. All his wheels had double locking lugs. Says something.

Great views - although my favorites were the close-ups of the wear-marks on the driver's floor and the shift lever. Great patina all around.

Cheers to a 17-year relationship!

It certainly can't hurt in a 17 year relationship! Or was that with the rover? ;-)

FYI, the ass comments are in poor taste. This board really is going downhill.

Ironically, I have an identical wear pattern on the shifter stalk of my '95! I always figured it was random, but now I'm not so sure. It's not as if there is anything it could have worn against.

I concur... weak.

His ponytail was really distracting me from all the reliability talk...

I like that they both mirrored what the other was saying and share the same world view. Seeing like minded folks is always nice.
