I really like the 101s but what is the practicality of owning one?

Also, how much

it's in the for sale section.

If only you had the PTO driven trailer maybe then I'd be interested.

There were two words that came to mind while driving Brian's RHD Tdi 101 on 40s...awesome and terrifying.

It's a collector vehicle that will climb a wall, haul a full sheet of plywood in the bed or, as I did last weekend, haul a pallet of concrete blocks.

After you are done with the weekend chores, you can drive it in the Veteran's Day Parade!

And, it has been a standout at every car show it has attended. Not many like it in this country. Not many anywhere in this condition.

See the For Sale section for details.............

Do I wish I had a 101?

If I was going to play with something that massive, I think that I would try to find a (running) 6x6 with an interesting motor, trans, etc.

Massive? A 110 is bigger.

Well of course I do...it would be a great place to put the Disco drivetrain...however, it would also need to be approximately half the asking price of this lovely piece of kit

Oh, smaller? I'd go for a 4x4 tractor.
