Yep, rust even worse than on my truck.

Sandy, I'd like to drive that 08 110 when I get back to Heidelberg in a year. I can both try out a Puma diesel engine and verify your existence simultaneously!

And you can check out my NAS 110 once it arrives. I guess than would make it a "you show me yours and I'll show you mine." And BTW, I'm married, so I'm only interested in the Rover aspect.

Although some internet fact guru could likely prove me wrong. I think it is "greener" to recycle a truck that was already manufactured and keep it going and keep it useful, then just buy a new car that you'll have to get rid off down the road. Just my .02

Mike, my thought was it would be less labor to redo a less rustic truck than one that bad. I would think labor would be a ton more to strip down a rust bucket(with sawzall and torch) than to unbolt stuff and replace. Probably wrong though. I would love to hear what you actually save on this one though.

Actually it is the other way around.
Takes us about 2 days max to strip a truck like this, usually 1.5 at most.

If we are taking a better one apart it takes quite a bit more time as we have to be careful with each piece and then evalute some things that could be good or bad (and that takes time).

If it isn't already...

a '70 Firebird Formula 400 conversion with the ultra cool dual scoops, Ram Air IV option, an SD-455 Poncho motor and a 4.11 12 bolt would be the ticket for quieting the loud mouth big block Camaro guys in the neighborhood... and best of all, it's NOT another Trans-Am !

Hey my newest car was made in 1994 so I understand. I would rather keep my truck running forever than have some new piece of crap. I just find it funny to throw the environmental pitch in there. I am sure the owner didn't get a td5 to save the environment. He got it because it makes that awesome tick tick tick tick sound.

Actually it already has a 455 and a TH400 that I took out of a 70 Bonneville and stuffed in it while I was in high school.
Stock hood though, as it was a 350 2bbl car originally.
Someday... someday. Right now it just sits under cover in my garage. last time I drove it was 1996. Swore I wouldn't drive it again until it was fully built... someday.
WAY too many projects in my mind.

Again, I'm sure someone can prove me wrong but.... recycled truck, twice the mpg as gas, fewer gallons purchased per year of a fuel that doesn't need to be refined as much before it reaches the pump... sounds greenish to me.

Yes, there is the whole particulate matter debate, but diesel is green IMO, even if the Prez. and the EPA don't agree with me.

If I could have a td5 I would or any diesel for that matter. The thought of better gas mileage and longevity is what I want. Less about the environment and more about it lasting and running when the end of the world comes.

On another note when was the last time this truck ran?

i get 10-11liter/100km with mine, i think it is awesome. Diesel is cheaper here than regular 95o petrol too. Also the power in lower rpm is very desirable i would say.

If I can't drive yours then you can't drive mine. I'll just have to go to the dealer and arrange a test drive.
