There's no question about whether a D1 COULD run a plow. The question was whether a Camel Trophy winning truck SHOULD run a snow plow? I say NO. The Declaration of Independence COULD be used as kindling, but I think most would say it SHOULD not.

That is a bit of an extreme analogy, but I agree.

Brett hit the nail on the head. CT trucks are not "normal" land rovers, and while they absolutely can be used for something, doesn't necessarily mean they should. Again to point out- this is at the discretion of the owner, and absolutely has no bearing on whether the person should be able to keep the truck. If I owned something of value, monetary or emotional, I'd want to see it/experience it often.


Again, not saying he shouldn't do that with the truck, it is/was his.

On the other side, I would hate to see camel trophy trucks in a museum, that's very low on the places they belong. They should be cared for and driven, on or off road.

Still can't find a reason to love your Rover, aside from the buddies you make while pumping gas, well try to keep up with guys like Shayne and I and maybe, just maybe, you will learn what owning a Land Rover and putting it to good use is all about.

Some people long for something in their lives that will never exist and parting a marvelous machine in there garage is the closet they will ever get.

Now you are really spouting some bs. Do you actually know someone at LR who has told you this or are you just making stuff up?

Really? What are you trying to say? If you can't say it clearly then don't say it at all.

I will elaborate...what you wrote above is BULLSHIT of the highest order. See - easy!

Barely remember writing that. It was the booze talking. I believe some of it but you're right, the rest is total BS! No offense.

I meant to post this picture with it.

My head hurts.

Is it sad that Matt is drunk-texting D90 at 2 in the morning?

Let's just hope he was not also putting one of his Land Rovers to good use at the time.

Since this was directed specifically at me and my comment...

Well turns out you are a bigger dipshit than someone else I know on here. Make friends while pumping gas? Polishing it in the garage? That's why I have my truck? Ask around. I use my truck probably more than most for wheeling. As far as "keeping up with guys like you"...no thanks. Guys like you that spew forth holier-than-thou comments such as these usually own Jeeps. I suggest you sell your shit & go buy one, then you guys can slap each other on the back around the campfire while wearing spotless khaki shorts & button-ups.

We're tied up at Harbor Hotel at Rowes Wharf. Rode hubways to North End. Gets a little blurry after that. Ah! Just remembered seeing an NAS 110 last night at Purchase and High St around 6:30. Anybody?

Nice fucking button-up shirt in that "extreme Camel photo" you posted to exhibit to everyone how hardcore you are. You really are a complete asshole....through and through. DEFINITELY Jeep material.

Hope you get this original one via email too!
