Those Toylanders are for their kiddy off road course. Probably more technical that what I took the big body on today.

An odd duck.... glancing over at the rear end as I was driving buy, I thought for a moment it was some kind of modified Defender.

Umm... what is it? Yes.

Not a Land Rover. I can't remember what it is, but I remember seeing them in the UK back in the 80's. Very cheap- obvious why!

The funny looking thing in RBBaileys post is indeed an UMM.

It really is amazing how many of them you see when there. Although I got about 60 or 70 in pics, I must have seen four or five times that many. Only a few of those on the road were "junky" looking. Even the hard working ones looked well cared for. Then you find a dealership, and it's just another thing entirely.

Spotted at Hale Street Restaurant last night (Sunday night the 18th), Beverly MA. Very minty NAS 110. I was in the white LR4 parked behind you on the street. We popped in for some sushi.

Nice, I'm sure we'll bump into each other if he goes there regularly.

Good pun! That is a UMM Alter 2, a Portuguese 4x4, supposedly a pretty capable one. Bity of a parts bin machine using some Jeep, Peugeot and propriety mechanicals, Bosch electricals, Hella lenses, etc., at least the ones I've seen. I came really close to buying one of the ~5 or so in the US before finally deciding that it would probably be to much of an irritation to deal with (parts, etc.). But if the right nice one ever presents itself....


I believe this one has been for sale for a while, or sold a few times within the past few years and I thought I read somewhere it is a bit rusty. Like to see someone save it though.

Rusty POS that showed up I'm my driveway. It looks like it will be sitting for a while. Be careful who you talk to on the interwebs.

Can't quite make it out as there is a beautiful desirable NAS 90 in front of it ...
