The Hamster's 110

Money quote:

They are, in factory original condition, noisy, they leak water in from the top and oil out from underneath, you can never demist the windows in winter, they handle like scaffolding towers, and use more fuel than Beijing.

Looking at it now, as an adult - well, almost - I can see how it might seem an odd starting-point for a customised car, a Land Rover. A bit like training a camel to do parlour tricks. But I love my Land Rover, and if I am going to spend years and a small fortune customising a car, I may as well do it to one that I like to start with.

Those are Racer Nero Rims. Very pretty and Strong.
They are open Center Alloys with steel lug inserts. If there was enough interest I could bring some in.
Pricey I think after shipping somthing like $300 each!!!! But I'm trying to work that number a bit.

what up wid dah under truck neon lights ?

F Reg thats an 89 or 90 truck. Have to admit I don't usually like 2 door 110's other than pickups but I like this one.
Those little Croy Tec alum gauge surrounds are a nice touch as well.

I believe that truck has been highlighted a few times in the UK publication Land Rover Montly. There was also a good article about the Series he owns as well in last months issue.
