Never in the realm of courtroom conflict
Have so many Land Rover owners owed so much to so few,
namely Will.

Now to go back and listen to the Shaft Theme again...
asking who is the "mutha&uc%ing Man"?
Will, right on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who's the man who would risk his neck for his brother man...
Will, right on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who's the cat who won't cop out when there's danger all about???
Will, right on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did Will mention that the Defenders are being returned by the government without any costs whatsoever to the owners?

Right on!

Awesome!

It'd be cool to have a big meetup with all the owners and truck (and perhaps a journalist?).

Will, tremendous job. You deserve way more than any of us could give you as thanks. Im sure we can figure out something appropriate to start with.

I am still in total shock and completely awed by this news. If the feds decide that mine can be released from the criminal investigation, I might just faint. Its been 3 and a half years since Ive even seen my truck.

Well there's a lot of room between saying they'll be returned and actually putting foot to pedal. Hope the return process is speedy and painless.

Kent,

You are still on my list sir, along with a few others. Just a few more things to tidy up here and then we'll be talking.

Stay tuned.

I bought and imported my 110 on the day all of this crap happened last Summer; today is my birthday. It's a good day. Thanks, again, Will. Even though you were fighting for them, you were actually fighting for all of us.

Q: What does this all mean for the case against what's-his-face in NC? If I remember, were not these vehicles tied in with his fraud case, and that is why they were targeted? I assume this settlement actually has nothing to do with his case, right?

I hope you let it go to your head because you deserve it. Congratulations Will and to everyone getting their trucks back. I never had a doubt that you would succeed - it was only a matter of when. Whenever I get to witness someone doing something selfless like this for another human being, it always gives me great joy. Compassion and fellowship - there are few things more beautiful than that. This is one of those times when Thank you just doesn't seem enough but - Thank you Will.

Ah the great wheel of Justice turns but slowly, but it does turn. Sometimes only because of the selfless and tireless efforts of stout champions like you, Will, who put their shoulder to it. Hearty congrats to you and to all the happy D owners about to get their Beast back on.

I can tell all of you, through the whole process and the countless phone calls Will has been nothing but positive. This positive energy would not allow you to interrupt him in conversation to express concern, thus you were positive as well by the end of the phone call.
He had me concerned when he drove through a snow/ice storm (ok, raced a little) to catch a flight to England for our trucks. He was not to be stopped.
While at times I had my doubts, he was steadfast throughout.
Will, thank you for bringing home our truck.
Looking forward to meeting you in person!
-Chris

Well done, Will! You are THE MAN! Your amazing resolve has produced an unexpectedly awesome resolution for some of your Birmabright Brothers, but has also earned you a special place in the our hearts and minds of the rest of us that weren't directly involved. You are definitely a "never say die" kind of guy!

All day I've been humming the tune "I fought the law, and the........................... scratch..........................WILL Won!!!" You were OUR Dedender! Thank you for all of your efforts and hard fought success!

It's got to be nice to know now, that if you drive the right roads in this country, you'll never have to buy a drink again! And if you happen to venture out west, there's some defender chauffeured wine tasting to be had! Actually, it's more like wine drinking! ;-) All the best. - Dave
