Hall of Shame of "Land Rovers that Suck"

Normally I'm not the kind to just sit back and ridicule, but there just seems like a need for a thread to compile all the poor Rovers that, for some reason, suck. Plus, many of these trucks suck so much that they keep coming up for sale. This is the place for Discos with fake Louis Vuitton interiors, pretty much anything by Bellargio, and any other truck that has been inappropriately violated.

I'll inaugurate the thread with a cheap and easy one:

Crimes: Re-VIN of a modern TD5 with a clearly absurd 1959 Series VIN. Completely tasteless chome appurtenances. Bellargio Hype.

I actually just deleted a few pics of rovers that suck.. but I found this one... someone went a little overboard with the sawzall...

Follow-up Post:

Found a few more hall of shamers...

The pink discovery had lamborghini doors and either louis vuitton or burberry interior... wish I had the rest of the pics of it from the EBay ad a few years ago.

I wish I saved the photo's from a customer of mine that chrome'd a skid plate kit I sent him. He was shocked that we didn't want to stock them.

IMHO I don't think the Series I funny car is cool. You could live a 1/4 mile from work and sleep late and be able to make it there in under 9 seconds.

Well I suppose I should include a pic of my LR3 since some of you here don't like the way it looks.

Ditch the soft top. Bobble head it over the windscreen.

The rims may not be my style, but I think the rest of us will agree. Your LR3 displays Insufficient Suck for this thread. Sorry, but you're just going to have to bolt on a lot more garbage before it belongs in this thread.

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

Surround it with the bar chicks you seen to attract. Maybe it will suck better then.
