Every time this truck gets posted, and its been a few now, I think of the line "who is the U-boat commander?". I think the lights are from some marine supply company.

Saw a really nice 2011 Defender 110 broken down just inside the Canadian/Alaska border!! Didn't take a photo since I thought it would be in poor taste!!

We tried to help them but the truck would just crank and not fire...they said this was the first trouble they had with it...

They were a French couple in a 2 door 110 on an extended trip...They had purchased it in France, then shipped it to South America, and had driven for about 6 months!! They hope to travel through Alaska and back through Canada, then ship the truck back to France from Montreal!!

And I thought we were on a long trip, just driving from Alabama to Alaska!!

We went to the border and asked for help for them, so they said they would take care of them...hope they're back on the road now!!

It's there alright. My house/driveway/garage is a total construction sight right now so I have it over at my parents and or sisters house. Post up the picts. I told my brother in law to take it out (which he has done in Sayville with my nieces) He said it was quite a head turner there.

Does anyone remember who owns the Shorland that was at the 50th at LRNA? ISTR it was also at British Car Day and the MAR.
