Greetings gentlemen (ladies?),
(And before anyone gets overly excited, the photo is of my dream D110, not one that I have... sadly...)
So I just found you guys a few days ago while searching for anything Defender related. I've owned various Rovers since buying my first Disco II in '99. Wrecked it rolling down a ridge for no good reason..
..then bought another DII. At the time I looked at a NAS D90 softtop (can't recall if it was a '95 or '97) owned by a guy working in Alameda who said it was Mossimo's beach toy. Loved it though it was well worn, but ultimately I had to go the more practical route as we were trying for kids at the time, hence the second DII. Still wonder where that D90 went. Anyway, traded in the DII on an '05 LR3 when they hit the market then lost it in the divorce 4 years ago. No worries, replaced that with the '08 RR Sport I'm in now. Upgraded the woman too!!
The Defender bug never left me and is nearing a fever state now. I've seen a lot of photos of D110 bespoke builds and there's no question now what my next Rover will be, looking very much like the Himalaya beauty pictured below, though not so over the top on features and cost.
Looking forward to hanging out with you guys here on the forum.
