My brother, Matt, & his girlfriend, Rebecca, gave me one if the best gifts ever yesterday for Christmas. A set of 3 hand carved Defenders (90, 110, 130) they happened upon while traveling in South Africa. Matt showed me the picture Rebecca took if him with the artist. The detail on these are incredible! Just too cool, thanks brother! And Merry Christmas!

It's worth nothing the above (white 110 referenced) was just south of exit 21 on the New York State thruway, and actually the *wife* is the one that spotted it...the kid & I actually missed it (and we were both pissed). If it was't the Thruway, I would have tried to pull a u-turn and go back.

Did also see the below later on as we continued upstate (separate sighting), which is a limestone 3-door 109:

yes, , that would be my wife's, Brandon did not drive his 90 pickup up to VT from NY but when he saw ours we chatted for a while .
And The Woodstock area has a good little haven for Land Rovers.
One of the vacation home owners drove into town the other day with his white custom (ECR) NAS 110 stretched to 130 (full hard top) quite the rig.
