Owner Explains the Attraction of Land Rover Defenders

As a "new" owner of an "older" Defender I appreciated this video.


http://www.carscoops.com/2014/03/own...and-rover.html


I recall a Harley commercial from years ago where one of guys answered the question,
"why do you ride a Harley"

and his answer was;

"if I have to explain you wouldn't understand".


I also ride a Harley so I guess that explains the Defender!
