Ok, i din't know if this the right thred but my 11 year old daughter was after me to watch a One Direction (an English boy band) youtube video. So I gave in and lo and behold there around at the 55 sec. mark was the band thrashing what looked an old series I. Anyway she says my Rover is now cool. Here is the link ...I think.

nice rover...nice beat. The lyrics of most kids music just drive me nuts sometimes. trouble with my kids was they like the beat but didnt understand the lyrics and would repeat them not even know what they were saying. We've had several problems with some of that stuff!....ok back to the point...NICE ROVER!! (bet you cant tell I have three kids...can you?)

Nice. Although I don't believe your story.

I never thought I would wish that a Land Rover would flip until I saw the post above

that's no thrashing... plus if the rover flipped, we'd be down one good rover. and someone would have to clean blood and skull fragments off the poor truck. That song is the most pathetic pile of shit i've erev had the displeasure of hearing. every second of the song is a blatant copy of some other song. no british accents, bunch of guys pretending to play guitar when there is no guitar on the song even.

silly teenybopper girls.
satanic bing industry music managers...


ugh I wish I could turn back time 5 minutes.

Sometimes that is the price you have to pay. Rovers can be rebuilt. Boy Bands must be destroyed.

That's actually a pretty cool-looking pic, aside from the whole knowing what'll happen to it next.

It is a cool shot.

Im guessing it going out into the yard, rather than the crusher, as it looks complete.

Those are the Great Divide wheels that came out on the 91 GDE's and then in '93 & '94 LWBs. Here is what they look like on a D90.

Thanks Tony!

The truck was actually getting deposited out of the way for us to go through, it may end up crushed eventually but prob not for awhile.

Wheels were white painted (factory) rrc 5 spokes. Interesting, but we'd already snagged a set of boosts off an LSE D1 that I'll be listing here early next week.

Gotta say that $1 to go into those Pick n Pulls is money well spent, quite enjoyable.
