Cheers from NC

New Member from Davidson, NC
I don't yet own a rover but hope to soon.
I am coming out of a 12 yr relationship with an 87 Toyota FJ60
Unfortunately, somebody totaled me and rather than rebuild her, I decided to let her go.
12 years ago, I was very close to buying a LR before going with the FJ because as a beginning/weekend mechanic, the '87 had a lot of benefits.
Now 2 kids later but with a little more heft in the pocketbook, I hope to get a 90.
Still investigating and trying to decide whether to get a pre-90 with some form of the 2.5, pony up for the NAS, or look into the newer ('90-91) imports with the TDI.
I would like to be able to get on the highway and my goal is for this to be my daily driver

I've already learned a lot form the board -
Thanks to everyone -

Getting close

After months of stalking the board and researching, I went with a 1990 TDI from DefendersDirectUK. Will has been great to work with and export papers are now filed for.
Hopefully will have more to share soon -

Welcome! I got my truck from the UK and had a bunch of niggles to work out over the next few years.

Now that I'm back on the right coast Jason, Adam and the crew at Performance Rovers in Matthews are the go-to guys for me and several other Defender-holics in Western NC. Check them out, but watch out for Kellgren's Beagles.
