I didn't know the Dalai Lama had a Land Rover!

After reading the auction it says he never drove it himself, but was a passenger.

It's in pretty neat condition, looks like the Lama is not
wheeling a lot...

With the amount and kind of fan the Lama has, the truck
is probably going to sell for much more than starting bid...

Let's see for how much

Gee, 4 days in to the auction and no bids at the starting $75k.
The tax write off would be everything above fair market value:
LR - $10k
Meet the Daili Lama - $?
Meet Sharon Stone for lunch - $150
Ouch

I have one of the original pistons sitting on my crudenza. Mike made trophies from them for the NVTR last year.
