Bet you were shocked at how small an E30 as well. Ditto for the 64.5 - 66 Mustang.

Be interested in meeting up with your friend in the Willow NAS truck for some trail driving in NH. I live there and only know a couple of people with NAS Defenders in State but hadn't seen this one.

YES...I am always shocked at how small blokes must have been back in the day (aka Series) to design cars with such little leg room.

I can never bring myself to buy a new vehicle (for me) these days....I wish I still had my 1986 Saab 900 Turbo - I loved that car. Maybe I should buy one....NOT!!! Another unreliable car hahaha

It actually didn't feel bad at all. Size was great. Probably the size of a 1 or 2 series now. Would love a nice one.

I appreciate that. I thought it would never arrive. Took a few months but finally showed. Been holding up pretty good so far. ------ Follow up post added August 20th, 2015 01:30 PM ------

I appreciate that. She has taken over the 110 while I am away for work. I find chicken nuggets, Barbie accessories, and other odds and ends daily. At times I miss the red. Always wanted a white 110 though. In about 4 months of non deployed driving I have racked up 12k miles. All is good! Going to start switching back off with the IIa now I am back for a bit.
