Got to love Dealers

Friend at work showed me a flyer that was mailed to him from Rosenthal Land Rover. Tell me what you see wrong. Good luck.

That's pathetic... no wonder everyone mistakes our trucks as them, the dealers are marketing them that way!

Most of the parts stores (and stores in general) in our area are closed on Sundays because of some "Blue Law" in our county.

Don't know how some of the other ones get away with it.

I think this became normal for everyone to call D90's Jeep. Hell, when we were in Moab I was talking to this girl and I told her "My Jeep" off course Keith started throwing rocks on me.

Found mine at a dealer actually for $19,900 (94 with SW top).

Only later did I discover the disconnected x-case lever and knife holes in the spare. Cost Nissan about $1,300 to rebuild the X-case under warranty, so I guess I got even with them.

Brace for impact, I'm in a "modifying mood". Massive thread count inbound.

You shoud see the Lake Bluff Center. It's an entire complex. Knauz has Jag, BMW, Mecedes and I think Chrylser all on one huge plot of land that is very nicely landscaped with a nice pond in the front. It has it's own museum which includes fully restored series 1-3, a defender or 2, couple 110's and the Kauz family race cars from about 1950. Pretty cool. I remember when I was looking for series trucks a long while back. The sales manager wanted to make a deal so he could get the cash to Knauz for a new private jet.

Must be nice....

If the 'Internet Specials' are only available online, then presumably there's a place online (form) to take advantage of these. Having to mention the ad verbally doesn't quite fit the definition of 'only available online.'
