The Pope Has Nice Rides!
I just returned from a trip to Italy. In the basement area of the Vatican museum they have all of the old "Pope-mobiles" on display, and I was surprised to see a Defender as well as an absolutely cherry FJ Cruiser. Here are some pics of the Pope D90 (the bulletproof area where he would stand in is covered), the Pope's FJ, and a new D90 I saw at an Italian Land Rover dealership in Tuscany. It was a real trip sit in a brand new Defender after all these years.
BTW---The Italian car salesman working at the dealership was a total dick and treated me like a bum off the street. I know the French have a bad reputation for being rude, but many of the Italians I met were not very nice at all.
