It is the Barrett Jackson effect. All it needs is one to sell at an insane price and that boosts the asking price of everyone elses.

Roll up doors on NAS 110s.
Beach Runners get split doors.

Honestly great to see that people spending around $300k have good, relatively original taste.

Not the prettiest things, but they work and are easily removed when not in use.

We use that line when people call here wanting to move from their Lexus or MB into a Defender, "You know a Defender is a glorified tractor for the street right?"

I always wondered how well the post sale feelings went with all these places making "luxury" 110s. I mean they can be quite nice, but "luxury"?

Also comes from the fact that we refuse to build blingy crap. If someone wants 20" wheels and a 3 tone paint job there are other places for them. We won't do it, goes against everything I think a Defender is.

That one was nice too (not an automatic fan myself though).
It is owned by the same guy that owns the Blue 110 in my earlier picture.

Someday I'll find the time to get the web site updated with all the stuff we have built over the last couple years. I stopped doing project pages a few years ago due to lack of time.

Maybe, but it sure was fun taking turns being strapped to that tracker seat on the front bumper going down Rt. 90 at 65 mph!

Cha- I'd be impressed if he had a tank commander on his payroll to drive him around in it, anyone can "own" a tank...! I hear tell Mark (Overlander) is available...
