Thank you all for your opinions. A $35k '25 yrs old' tdi sounds great, but if I had that much laying around I think I would already have a Rover. My daily driver is a Nissan Titan... very reliable, dry, quiet and drip-free. Sounds very dull compared to a defender!! I think i would have to ditch it in order to get said Rover, and that seems strange to get a truck that is 12 years older with 100k more miles. I must have some loose screws to be considering that. Sure sounds fun though.

35k for most Defenders is insane. Youd do better to get 200$ worth of craftsman tools and a 15k defender. I took the high road and bought tools. Ill be buried in my Defender.

Your icon and that statement contradict each other.

I think if you really want a defender, you'll find a way.
I always wanted one. I set my budget and went from there.
Good luck!

a good starter rover would be a stage 1 v8 s3 with parabolic springs and an Overdrive

I certainly do like what I see there! I guess ultimately right now my hang up is the money part. Defenders all seem to be pretty pricey even for the 1983/4 models. I kinda like this guy's selection and Rover4x4 said he is a good mechanic, plus he is my most local shop. I wonder if the 83/4 models will hold their value like the NAS models have. That one in NM still looks pretty good to me though... Maybe I need to start budgeting and think to the near future before I get too excited. Nothing wrong with a little rover-porn, uh research till then

I just spit coffee all over my screen. Is this a joke? If it is it's hilarious. Thanks!
