Some interesting Defenders

I just thought these were unique, a few 130's and a 110.

I ran across these a few years ago. I believe these were actually produced by Land Rover South Africa for Game viewing safaris. Something like a 147 inch wheelbase...

Hey, Scott:
Be aware that there has been a ton of rain up there! We went through mud that was 4 feet deep (no problem there), but about half way up, there are wash outs six feet deep on a pretty steep climb that were a pretty good challenge. Freaked the kids and wives out so bad, we turned back. The last thing I wanted to do was roll my 110!
Spectacular ride though!

Dendy
