An unworthy rival to the Zipmobile, which has the actual chops.

For $100k I'd think the tires would be new.

On one of the other forums I am on, we have a "Craigslist Crackheads" thread. This would certainly go in it.

100K? Brotha puhleeze.

Sad thing is someone will probably buy it for that.

Brotha pulheez buy it!!! I'd be ecstatic if this sold for 100k. Wouldn't it be nice- especially in this economy for the value of our Rovers? I'm not going to jump on the pig pile; I'm rooting the opposite way on this one. I get what your saying- it's hard to believe that a farm implement would be worth so much...but more power to the seller if he's able to find a buyer who feels it's worth that price. Some collector might happily snatch this up and we stand only to benefit when it's time to sell our Rovers. I can see trashing a Pontiac Grand Prix with a Land Rover body; you know- the hall of shame type of stuff. I get that...but this is a well-documented 109 and I think it stands a chance of selling- at least I'm remaining optimistic that it will for the benefit of the marque and all of us here. Alright- stepping off the soap box now. Later BITCH BOYS!!! (nothing derogatory meant by that- if you haven't checked out the "bitch boys" thread you should- pretty friggin' funny!)
