watching the episode where they did the 60s Bronco. Would love to see what they would do for me if they were talking to my wife and friends. So, if they took your truck, how would you want it to come back?

When my 110 was stolen by our government almost 2 years ago while I was in Iraq, there was about 5 minutes when I thought, "Gosh, maybe Im being Overhauled..... wouldn't that be cool?" Oh well.

But to answer your original question, the fine folks of DefenderSource.com have pretty much given me the equivalent of what I would have wanted Chip Foose to do to my original truck

If they talked to my girlfriend it would probably come back a Mercedes G-wagen. She would tell them it needs to be quiet, comfortable, and safe.

Agree 100%. That was sick & wrong!

I'd like to see them do a series. I watched with baited breath whilst they did a 356, but it turned out great. If they could put new technology under a series & retain the classic look, that would be cool. If they did a Defender, I suspect it would end up looking like some of the abominations we have seen posted here....
