You got that right. Those are real bad. Are those just for these goofy limited editions or will the whole line be infected with them?

You could BUT it still wouldn't be a Land Rover or cost $95,000 ;-)

Well if it's $95k for the pair then we might have something....

So, bucket seats, leather, alloy wheels, clear lights, a sunroof and running boards? You could get all those on a 1982 chevy pick up.

P38 with 05 front and rear ends?! Why would you bother?

Hi Guys,

New here and just wanted to say hi and ask one very important question, well at least to me. You guys seem to have A LOT of info on Land Rovers and I just want to know if my newly acquired 110 belongs in this "hall of shame". I just imported it a month ago from Canada. I don't really have a lot of info on it and was wondering if you guys have seen it listed somewhere or if you guys know any of her history. She is a 1983 RHD V8 110 with the LT95 transmission and overdrive. Have you seen her? Her name is EMMA, links to photo below. Haven't figured out how to post pictures yet. Thanks

As bad as this is, I have to say, it is the best integration I have see of the headlights onto a P38. The front bumper is still wavy where it meets the grille and lights and I hate the tailgate, but it does look like a relatively well put together abomination!

Also, as if it wasn't bad enough, this one started as a 4.0SE, and after all that work the guy can't take 10min to replace the backlight bulb for the message center? Really?

Can't help you with the truck history, but I can verify one small detail for you.
That truck has insufficent suck to belong in this thread.

It looks like it needs some TLC, but this thread is about trucks that have stupid things done to them, which yours is not.

What's the other thing in the garage with the solid rims on it?

-Hans

Hans,

I will take that as a compliment I thought maybe it has been traded/listed/modified so many times that the veterans on here would recognize it. The other thing in the garage with the solid rims is my 1978 FJ40-Consuela.

This one might qualify based on this "special order color"

If you want it gone that bad, you may want to lower the asking price.
