Speaking of Bond car I saw this one at the Peterson Museum in LA a few days ago. It's one of the Spectre trucks.

That's what happens when the set's art department and the props department get together without talking to engineering :-)

Apparently not, but the day that I let a little "rope" stand between me and hot-wiring a Defender it's time to hang up my saddle .

------ Follow up post added January 27th, 2016 12:36 AM ------

Edit: apparently it's a "hemp towrope". Am I supposed to smoke it?

Actually, they didn't put enough thought into it. This isn't a very solid tow point...



But Engineering got to have their fun too...

That must be annoying to shift with that roll bar structure in the way. Is that part of the roll cage, or something else?

Not a roll bar. It appeared to be as Rob suggested, a rally brake lever.

Defender 110 #153/500 in Kona

Spotted at Getzinger Motorworks of Hawaii in Kona on 1/25/16. Looks like a Galpin Auto Sports project.
