I had an'08 LR3 when I bought my Ninety. Had both for several months, then decided to DD my Ninety & sold the LR3. I miss the LR3 for freeway driving but not enough to buy another.

Wife has and loves her LR3 and I now have a Defender 110 as my daily. Guy walked by the other day. "A Rover house and you have a real one in the back". He mean my 110 parked behind my wifes LR3. Ha. My wife was like, "what my LR3 isn't real"?

The 'shop' officially puts it over the top for rationalization!! And I never have a finite quantity- could be mine, a future build, a parts truck...

Oh, and a 40' container for spares ;-)

I'm down to only four Rovers at the moment - I've owned as many as six at a time.

Sad news though. I missed out on the wholesale auction. My HOA just breathed a collective sigh of relief.

I wanted a D90 since high school. Land Roveritus officially kicked into gear once I dated a girl in college that had a new 1999 P38. That truck was like driving pure sex for the first few years. I then bought a 06 LR3, then D90, and now a RRC.
If I had my way I would have an LR4 and the last year of the Range Rover before it started to look Japanese (current body style). My wife had a D1 for her first car at 16 so she can relate to the green oval.

It happens.........I started with one and now have two IIA's a RRC and a two project 109's.

At the moment, something is broken on all of the "drivers".........that part really pisses my wife off. She says something to the effect of, "we have all those Fu$$%in Land Rovers in the back yard and not a one of those pieces of sh!T run.......blah, blah, blah...".

No matter how many Rovers, always a Ford truck- just in case!

I am down to three and I consider that an accomplishment.

Parts is my big addiction. Ugh. But on the plus side, WAY more storage space next month when I move.

Don't know about that. I have been driving a 110 because the powerstroke was down
