Reformed lurker...

Hello all - my first post here though I have been lurking for years... finally signed up so I could post in the for sale section but thought it was best to say hello here first.

My first "car" was a 1962 IIa SWB - drove it daily through the end of high school then university. After I moved to the Toronto area I coudn't make the old truck reliable for highway driving and regrettably sold it.

A few years later I finally got back to Land Rovers... my subsequent acquisitions over the past 3 years were as follows:

1970 SWB - non-running project on galv chasis with overdrive (still have those bits but mostly parted out since it was missing too many bits to complete

1967 SWB - that's the green one in the picture attached - completely original and 100% complete less the chunks of the rusted frame that had fallen off. In the process of a complete rebuild on the galv chasis but it will be a few more years before I complete it so I bought a...

1998 Defender 130 Td5 - imported it myself from France as a daily driver. It has been fantastic & a very comfortable truck compared to the series trucks I was used to. This truck is up for sale since I have bought a...

1994 Defender 130 (300tdi with automatic) - once the Td5 is sold this will be my daily driver. A great truck which is a bit more comfortable to drive in the start / stop of commuter traffic. Springs have been converted to lighter coils so eats up the bumps and should be a pleasure off-road due to the flex.

As you can see I've got the bug for sure so I'm likely to get another one sooner or later but need to keep it to 2 "complete" trucks at a time...

Welcome Kurt. Glad you joined up. Nice to see another GTA Rover owner on here.

I saw Kurts Td5 back in Sept at a local British Car show. It's a beaut.
