New member from Montreal Canada

Hello,
I'm happy to have found a great source for nformation on these great machines.

After years of dreaming of driving an old Land Rover, I'm in the process of importing an Series IIA from Central America with my brother.

We haven't bought it yet...the process will take a few days. Than the plan is to have a road trip all the way back to Montreal. Some 5500 miles!

Lets hope luck is on our side!

Good luck with the import and post pics!

Not sure if you know but Stowe, VT has a British Invasion show every fall. And Rovers North is nearby too.

I'm interested in knowing what you paid for it and the difference between what you can get the same vehicle for stateside. I'm all about an epic road trip!

We there advertised between 5000 and 15000$ in various condition. As you can imagine the cheaper one are beat up and have had some shaddy repairs over the years! Around 10k$ they get better but original ones that have not ben fettled with are hard to find...
In total we looked at about 10...but have not made the purshase yet. I think we found THE one!
I expect a bunch of taxes and complications to complete the buy...so maybe 16k$ total and we have to take into account the shipping/driving plus registration...
I don't know how much it´s going to be in total!

And the prices Stateside seem to vary greatly...so I'm not sure it will be worth it, but let me tell you at least for now the adventure is a lot of fun!!!
