Range Rovers

I don't want to sound too elitist but I kinda like doing down the road in the Defender and getting my rig checked out by folks in brand new Range Rovers.

Me too, except when it's my wife catching me sneaking off to go buy more parts.

Ha! First time I rode in the defender, I thought something was going to vibrate off of it. Chris reassured it was just her talking to me!

I drive the 80" to the office on nice days...seemingly the same days that the guy who lives in the gated community at the golf course drives his shiny new SLR.

I do get a kick out of his waving and enthusiasm...and knowing that I'm having just as enjoyable a drive in my ancient little tractor-mobile.

I like the looks from the women in the passenger seat of the new Range Rover checking out the defender........it's like, "Yes, this is what a real man looks like."

Drove my Series all over the place this weekend and probably spent 2 hours over the course of the weekend talking to complete strangers about it, including a couple of skateboarding teens who knew what it was!
Wave to almost anyone in a post- 2006 Rover and you get looked at kinda funny, if you're noticed at all....

Wow this same conversation took place on the LRO board back in the 1990s, but then it was Series trucks vs Range Rover (now) Classics and Discoveries. In those days it was noted how Range Rover drivers never waved or even knew what a Series was.

There are two guys on my street with new supercharged RRs, one of them being a LWB.

Both of their wives drive new LR4s with the supercharged v6., and one of their daughters drives a 2012 LR4...

Both of them know what a Defender is. One of 'em offered me cash for mine. I guess I assumed most LR Owners understood something about the heritage of what they drive with the exception of the Evoque owners... But I could be wrong.

My experience is that RR drivers tend to be oblivious to the LR heritage after the classic.

X8..., that's been my experience also. I think most Jeep fanciers know what a D90 is before RR.
