What to do with 3 Rovers?

So by mid-November, I will have three Land Rovers in the driveway. In anticipation of the conversation with my wife, I figured I would throw it out there to D-90 and ask the question all of us dread: If you had to sell one, which one would you sell and why?

The Contenders

A - The Original
1985 110 200Tdi LT77 RHD in Bonatti Gray. My first real Land Rover. Mechanically very sound after having a bunch of basic work done. Full OME springs and shocks with about 2 inch lift. Black vinyl interior with full Rhinolining. Maybe even more Rhinolining than Josh's 90. No headliner, no radio, Mantec tire carrier.

B - The XTech
1986 110 300Tdi R380 LHD in Zambezi Silver with Santorini Black roof and trim. Modeled after the new XTech with SVX grill, lights and surrounds and Sawtooth rims. Undergoing full mechanical at Foley's. Full leather interior, new carpets and mats. Galvy chassis.

C - The 127/130
1987 127 3.5L V8 LT85 LHD Double Cab pickup in Santorini Black. RiverHouse refurbishment. Full rust removal, bare metal repaint. SD full exterior cage front and rear. SVX Recaro seats in front with black leather rear seats. Treated chassis.

So there you have it? Please take the poll and let me know which one you would sell!

My vote is get rid of the Original 110. Rhinolining sucks and removes the "originality" to me. Keep the rack and swap to Xtech.

The XTech...full mechanical by Foley and galvy chassis. Enough Said.

127/130 is pure bad ass.

I think you should sell the 130 to me. Then you will have two similar vehicles and I would have a super sweet rig.

Clearly you have enough disposable income to pay expensive shops to build vehicles for you. I'd suggest getting a storage garage and put one or two there if your wife really has a problem with them in the drive... which I'm sure she won't seeing that you're already spending lots of dough on rebuilds which is just as bad as them sitting in the drive.

I don't view 130s as cool. To me they are work vehicles, the local government F250s of the UK. I'd sell it if you had to pick one from the three.

I would sell the original 110, and buy a 97 ST, so she can drive it too...

In all honesty, the wife doesn't really care. It's more that 3 is probably more than I need. It's a long story as to how I ended up with 3 and with 2 at Foley's and RiverHouse. Let's just say that wasn't the original plan. Both Stuart Foley and Michael Bax have been great to deal with and helped me out tremendously.

I don't like the X-tech, too ugly on the outside and the full leather seems a bit wrong for a defender, the original 110 looks nice i would keep that, and the 130 looks pretty sweet so keep that too.

If you don't want to sell them i am open to donations :D

I'll drive the X-tech around and you can drive my D90 around - it'll take up less room than any of your other trucks!

Josh,

Given that I work in NYC, I might eventually make a happy hour. Definitely once the XTech arrives.

Sell me one!

Wait you live in CT and you have room for 3. I live in a small box in NY and own 3, so i'd keep them if I were you.

Probably true. I do like those 130 station wagon builds from Foley and Nene.

Jon, please take even the thought of selling the 130 out of the equation. That thing will be awesome when it's done! I mean, how many 130s have you seen in person? Just one for me...110s are a dime a dozen! (well, not really...but compared to a 130).
