I get it to a point. And I am a "classic" owner. But I also appreciate what is going on in getting/keeping cars on the road and I appreciate that Land Rover is still around and viable. The Defender is just not possible--and name me one more classic that is. Bronco? nope. Scout? Nadda. FJ series? Please. I know what we want, but to get it made is not possible so we all have to be willing to see what is possible within the current frame work (or, if you want to bash your head against a wall, change the framework). So the evoke? Doing good. Next generation of the Defender? Really, who knows--but I will be looking at it even if it has IFS, computers and who knows what--other options (other than buying dinosaurs, which I am down with) are just not possible...

after seeing what the LR3 can do this weekend at Uwharrie Safari, I need to give LR a bit of rope.

And Chevy hasn't been the same since they stopped building the Nomad. The suits got to them too.

TRUTH, the new wrangler proved you can update a design for safety and offer creature comforts and still remain true to the breed

When driven right, amazing. The boys out west have been putting the 3/4/sport platform to the test since the intro 9 years ago. It's a rover. May not be a solid axle on coils or springs, but it's lineage is in it's frames. And i'm pretty sure the people in Solihull are just as proud of that as they were the first series. The LR3 is an unbelievably capable vehicle, even bone stock.

Cant fault a brand for wanting to stay alive. And alive they've been. Year over year growth since TATA's investment has been stellar.

I have seen an LR3 pretty rough trail at Rausch. I was impressed. And the new Range Rover got voted Four Wheeler of the Year - iirc the article said the new Range had very good off road capabilities.

The LR3 in our group made most obstacles look easy. Riding in comfortable seats, comfortable suspension with the A/C blowing is a tough life.
