Its not a Range Rover, its an illegal 110.

You may be able to get this thing registered, but if it were in a major accident no doubt the Ins company would investigate and find out it is contraband and drop the policy. Which may be where the "pull the plug" poster was going...

Why is it illegal? It's registered as exactly what it is and I'm sure it would be insured as such. It's not titled as a 1970. I would think the insurance company would get that. With that said, I don't think any insurance company would insure it for 130k.

agreed, I wasn't jumping to conclusions. Unlike other offerings I've seen, I was giving this one the benefit of doubt because it is listed through a legit dealer.

Let's be honest though I'm sure at some point in this vehicle's travels/life there was some document filled out fraudulently (however minor or major) somebody lied about something to get it where it is today. If it's got some type of crazy exemption, I'm sure the intent of the examption was "bent" or whatever. (like the guy in Boston who had the London taxis imported under some business use exemption). No judgement whatsoever. I'm stoked that somebody could get it done....but lets see.

The point is Im more curious what the story is with this truck rather than jumping to conclusions.

2007 :D. Then a 2009, and now a 2012. Pumas are truly amazing trucks, the first time I drove ours it was a life changing experience(it was the first LR I had ever driven).

Following his logic, his kids probably do not ride bikes... Got forbid they get T-boned while riding, "pulling the plug" would not be his concern....

I said earlier that I catch myself feeling stupid when I rationalize finding a way to own a brand new Defender. It makes no practical sense really. for the amount you pay and would put at risk, you're really limiting yourself in terms of actual capabilities. Not to mention the service complications when one of the many computers or electronic thing's break. THAT SAID, I still want one. Personally, I think it would be for the bragging rights more than anything. Sooooo, that's quite a bit of coin to spend trying to one-up The Jones. If you got it like that, then good for you. I definitely have better ways to spend my disposable income.

This is really a bizzaro-world! Imagine a world where some random country (say Jordan) no longer allowed imports of Chevy Suburbans because they and Jordanians were paying the equivalent of USD$150,000 for a 2010 SUburban with 40,000 miles?

Its cool to have things that nobody else has, but for Christ sakes there are easier and less costly ways to accomplish that. Everyone has their price-points (where they would say "no way, not at that price") and mine gets lower the more I rationalize and learn.[/QUOTE]


Jackie, I agree with you! Here in Australia they look at Ford Mustangs and F150's like we look at Defenders. They are a few guys that import them and they sell for 100K plus(legally). I found a Raptor for 150K. Also, gas is about $6 dollars a gallon so you can imagine filling that up.

My Puma is awesome, if anyone ever visits you could borrow while you are here and trust me I've tried to think if ways to bring it back. At the end of the day I don't think its worth the risk. Yes, its also completely irrational for all the naysayers. Then again, seems like owning a Defender is irrational.

Yuck!

["QUOTE=Neil McCauley;408695]Seeing how I flushed probably billions of my kids into the toilet throughout the years",

If that is the case then I flush a Neil every day after my morning cup of coffee and bran muffin. There so cute when their brown and have a few bits of corn.


I do put a lot of trust in my SG sliders for a side impact. Why not! We are putting just as much faith in a rollover that the NAS cage will sustain the interior compartment.

Unfortunately the only way you will know if they are remotely effective is if they are tested .... I hope that never happens.

I understand are referring to the effectiveness of NAS cages, but IMHO, sliders will be vastly superior over the stock side sill. Just go by your local road course and check out some of the budget race cars that have been t-boned on the track or broadsided the end of a K-rail. The factory unibody sill will be obliterated yet the rollcage made of .120" x 1.5" to .095" x 1.75" dia DOM will have held up very well. Additional bonus is the height of the sliders thinking the brunt of most cars would get pushed under.

Anyone else notice the large dent in the rear of the driver side, and the buggered rear crossmember? Looks like it's been smacked a few time.

I think the reflections are playing tricks on my eyes! It looks messed up on both sides but an impact like that would mangle the rear end pretty bad, enough to warrant replacing those body parts?!?

Ah- Flawless black...pretty when done right, but a biatch to keep clean.

The pictures do make the bodywork and cross member look wavy. Short of Schlepping up there not going to know the truth.
FWIW, lets say I had the cash to get it. I wouldn't. Just not convinced its legal in this Country.

Somebody call this guy!
I'd do it myself, but I'm guessing I'd get frustrated within the first 30 seconds after not getting a straight answer. I need all the coping skills I have in reserve to deal with jackasses at work I don't want to waste my patience on a phone call unless I have to.

Does anyone have good personal skills on this board and wants to do some detective work?


EDIT-curiosity got the better of me. I left him a message. We'll see what happens.......

I think just about all Defender bodies look wavy, but it looks like there's a puncture hole below the holes for the rear license plate, and a fairly serious dent in the rear crossmember from what I can tell. Cirlced in red.
