Likewise Dean, all the housewives at Whole Foods look at my Defender kinda curiously when I park it next to their freshly waxed NRRs. Only id they actually realize that they are also driving a Land Rover.

Bikes can go in with wheel off (though I use a hitch carrier) , seats are great. People have fun sitting back there because they are facing each other.

Get the hitch carrier from Yakima. I used to stuff my bikes into the back - just tears things up trying to get it in. Even my singlespeed and road bikes have trouble at times. the Yak' keeps your back looking good as well, and less cleaning after muddy rides or cyclocross races (even worse)!

I'd give tha tone to ECR for a full & complete original restoration with an uprated original engine.

I have had series trucks with the original engine. Weak!!! and a little mor expensive to work on. With the chevy I can drop into pep boyz or auto zone and get parts cheap.

Sorry to get off subject.

Not to hijack, yeah, but what would you do if you were in Malaysia or Irkutsk?

My 69 IIA was faster than my D90 bone stock.

Joe, I'm in Brentwood, but would be happy to meet up some time. Likewise to any other So. Cal Defender owners. Will trade a ride in either a) new RR -- whose suspension can raise or lower. b) 1987 959 -- whose suspension can also raise or lower



PS -- Is there a RR site like this one?
