Defender as a minivan

if it's a 7 passenger vehicle isn't it pretty much a minivan? I'd previously been asked for pics of two kids in carseats in the front of my Defender... but since I don't leave the seats there I'd forgotten to take pics until now. Obviously their mother wasn't around so they have really bad hair and dirty faces (but we were going to get dirty anyway is my excuse)

anyway: 4 kids + 2 car seats heading off to the spring creek trail http://www.traildamage.com/trails/index.php?id=36

You are the best father in the world to figure out how to pull that off.
I am impressed!
Great pics too.

Teach the little one in the middle to shift for you with her feet.

That's cool. It's always great to see little ones having fun with rovers. Teach them wrench sizes and you'll have a pit crew.

Very cool - nice that you have 7 seats. I'm stuck with seating for 4 right now but have a 3rd row out of a Suburban that I'm going to try and fit in the back - that would bring it up to 5.

My kids use the 90 as a jungle gym. The 3 year old, takes all the bungie cords that hold the shovel and seatbelts down and adds even another layer of tech to it by looping them around the rollbars and tire carrier. I'd stress if it was something like my previous Audi S4, but the kids don't hurt the 90 that much more than the trail.
