not real life sighting, but a Defender featured in this Victorinox "Own an Icon" commercial:

Wasn't expecting this monsoon today. Especially with a new 32" TV in the tub!

ARKONIC build in for a blown head after 1,200 miles on a "new" engine. This is what the tech told me. 1989 d90. Land Rover dealer in Scarborough Maine. Overall a very clean truck but for the price (88k) I'd be pretty BS about the engine.

Any UK based shop charging $100k range for these should really do the resto work in the UK where the parts are plentiful and the engine swap state side post import. Why rebuild a turd?

I still don't get why anyone who is willing to spend big money would buy a ROW 90. I can understand the 110 as its not as readily available in the USA but if I had 100k to get a 90 it would be a NAS and not some tarted up turd. Hell there is a company here that can get you a NAS in 12 weeks for the same price.

Ugh side facing car seats. Not sure if there are rules against this in Maine, but I am pretty sure this is not allowed in New York.

Not sure, but I think it neither. Tech said it wasn't a rover engine.

Yeah I'm not up on local MV laws but even if it's legal doesn't mean it should be done

Does anyone remember Jaba the hut in the Star Wars movie?
He had a little creature as a side kick.
His laugh still echoes some times.

It was. It's a 19J with their funky 300 a/c setup. I think arkonik is sending over another head or something. I'm waiting on an engine number to send some parts to them.
