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 .

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.

It's been Galpinized. Seriously, it's a thing!

Wait, is that a "thing" where you defer your maintenance and repairs even though you have the time, money, space, and parts...and then are forced to make sudden repairs (with the help of friends) at a more inopportune time and in less than ideal settings & situations (i.e. rocks in your back, no parts to repair, improvised ratchet strap hoists, and whatnot)?

Huh...you weren't kidding....BUT I'm not sure it's something you want to broadcast, Mr. Pinto:

Honestly though, check out these other Galpinized Pinto's....one that flys, one with flames, and a couple of Starsky & Hutch paint schemes:
