Defender Convoy!!

On Sunday about 4:10pm, my son and I were travelling in Toronto on highway 401 (east) when we passed these Defenders in the express lanes just south of Pearson Airport. As you can see from the mudflaps, they were keeping up with traffic. I tried to get the attention of the young lady that was driving but to no avail. What a beautiful sight!! When we went passed these LR's, we passed another 90 Td5 being trailered in the collector lanes! Does anyone know the story behind this rare site???

a young lady driving a 130 and towing a 90? might be the best sighting of all time.

Pretty sure they were heading back from British Car Day at Bronte Creek. Those look like vehicles that are up for sale from a small new shop near Peterborough Ontario, I saw pics in FB that they were going down with four trucks.

I was driving through Summit, NJ the other day and saw that Rolf had a Japanese / Dubai spec white D90 on the lot and wheel chock'd with similarly mysterious missing outer cage bits. Probably this one (which I'm fairly certain was just for sale in CA?).

Saw this in Windermere. You can drive it on 'rugged trails' for $230/2hrs.







I like the wheels, but not in that colour.

I can now state with 100% certainty that although the rubber A-bar looks great/modern, it is as useless as if it were made from chocolate.

Wait, so you're saying my '94 NAS doesn't look as clean as this one?

Could this be the $10k chicklet score? That 94' remained in Leesburg. Note the holes in the wing over the headlights.
