I honestly had a dream last night that he posted it for sale here legitimately but described it without posting pics and we all knew what it was and had to just be like "sounds cool. GLWS."

2 days left, $10k opening bid but not a single bid yet. Based on his user ID I'd say he's into the lucrative field of investing in rabbits.

Land Rover Defender | eBay

Item location:
Trabuco Canyon, California, United States

I had a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix GT front wheel drive engine put in for reliability, performance and for easier repairs in the future. The engine and transmission only had 22,000 mile when I put in the vehicle and its been driven about 6,000 miles since. Has carbon fiber gauges. It has zip up windows for driver side and passenger side doors. Five matching aluminum wheels and five tires (spare is brand new ) the 4 have about 80% tred on them. There are no leaks. There is also power steering and a 5 speaker surround sound system with CD remote radio.

It has independent suspension and 4 wheel disc brakes fro the same vehicle. It stops excellent and is very fast and light. I had a 40gallon plus aluminum gas tank made and its in the back.

It could use new seats. I was going to have aluminum bumpers and an a custom aluminum hood made but I never got around to it. The original vehicle had a very slow engine and horrible brakes so that's why I decided to have the modifications made. I also had drilled slotted rotors and ceramic brake pads put on. No rust. The frame was sand blasted and painted. The engine has a aluminum engine cradle. V6 3.8 liter.

This is a turn the key and drive vehicle. I drive it about once a month.

Sounds to me like he used the Pontiac as the base build, not the Rover.
Aluminum engine cradle? All of a sudden, I had visions of the old Chevy Vega and Monza with the weak frame under the engine that would bend if it had anything bigger than the Iron Duke 4 cal in it.

Yes sir, sure is according to the write up. And if I recall someone mentioned the radiator is between the engine and firewall. Have to find that comment.

Its been FWD since it first appeared. The biggest disappointment is that it was separated from the bowflex a couple owners ago.

I thought it was a NordicTrak? Or maybe that was before the Bowflex?

You know, Trabuco Canyon isn't that far away, maybe an hour's drive. That would be some serious entertainment.

You know you have to... Is the canyon deep? Can you accidentally leave it in neutral and let it go in?

Buy it and you can be "that guy" out on the trails, plenty of time to show it off when you get stuck every 30 yards

The only reason to buy it would be to burn it to the ground and finally put it out of its misery.
