Yup - sold. It now belongs to them.

And yes that is it on their site for sale. Good price - given what the paid me for it (and no don't ask I will not tell you out of respect for them) and their expenses and such it's a good buy. I really loved that truck and had a blast building it. There are minor things it needs to be 150% perfect but it is a great truck.

I am still very tempted by the RRC he has there - but their is one near me that's really nice so I may end up with the closer one.

RMR are a good group of guys.

That reminds me I need to get my tires from Tim..... unless someone wants them and wants to pick them up at RMR? 255-85-16's I'd sell them cheeeep and it would save them the bother of shipping them to me and me the expense of said shipping.

That 109 was sick. They are enthusiast first and a dealer second. One of the guys there had actually been looking for a 109 when that one came up so it was a no brainer.

Some dealers cruise the boards looking for motivated sellers. I know Copley doesn't do that.

Some lawyers follow ambulances to accident scenes looking for victims to represent, so its a proven business model.

True, there is always someone out there looking to flip even the smallest, most worthless item for a profit. Sure, its nice to make a few bucks here and there to support a hobby, but looking at every thing as an opportunity to put a hundred bucks in your pocket is sad.

Agreed. It seems that even here we are too often not a community to help each other and share our passion for defenders, but a place for those inclined to take every opportunity they can to profit from others. Oh well.

I am just like a drug user who starts dealing to support his addiction, in this case it is just a rover addiction.

I never buy to flip, but I do buy with an eye toward resale.

I agree with all here.

It's sad to see her back for sale, but I knew full well what would happen when I sold it. I got a fair price - I am happy - and I hope he makes some $$ on it after playing with it a bit. More power to them!

I am sure he will make a few $$ selling that green RRC too, but the fact is it seems a solid truck at a decent price (what he quoted me was much better than the "list".)

For now I am driving my daily driver that I just picked up - an Audi Allroad - so that opens me up to having a more purpose oriented Rover. Rather than trying to have the Rover pull all duties I can now find one that is more of a "toy". It would almost be sad to have one as clean as the RRC he has there, or even as nice as the Hybrid TDI Guy has/had? Do you still have it? That is a realllly cool truck.

Doug.

well i dont agree. i feel like its a win win situation for all of us. we buy, we sell, we trade. so i happen to do it for a living. big deal!!! whats wrong with getting paid to do what you love. i dont feel like i've ever prayed upon people in need. i dont know how many of you guys have to deal with the retail public but trust me, it has its ups and downs. i love the dealership and i love dealing with all you guys and i feel like we help each other. if you see something on my lot you like, most of the time im going to make you a crazy deal because i know the truck is going to someone who will appreciate it. Red Mountain Rovers is nothing more than a hobby of mine that got out of control.

BINGO!

I am constantly buying and selling different rovers as well and I do it to enjoy the trucks as well as make some money and I do not see the problem as I buy them right and sell them right and usually fix shit in between. I have also done a lot of business with Red Mountain Rovers and he speaks the truth, see something you like and he will make the deal right for everyone.

People would be a lot more forgiving if you posted pix of build-ups, projects, offered free advice or did more hobby-out-of-control related posting. Like half you total posts are related to making bottom-line offers and inquiring if things are for sale or not - so it just looks like you're here to skim. Its just a matter of give and take - some vendors have given away so much free info that they can get away with whatever they want, and no one minds.

I am not one to spend a ton of time and excessive money trying to do crazy restorations and do pictures of every step. I also have built lots of trucks and have been doing this long enough that I do not need to ask a question on this board everytime I want to fix or upgrade something. And I offer lots of advise when needed, but do not see a need to piggyback on something when the answer is already been given.

what kind of free advice, like whats a car worth? were's the best place to sell it? the cheapest way to ship a car ? sure. i know all about that. i dont know anything about building or restoring land rovers. what i love is buying one that someone has put there time and craftsmanship into and hearing there stories and driving the finished product. then explaining the whole thing to the next owner and letting them understand that a land rover is so much more than just a means of transportation.

Thumbs up Tim!

I hope my comments in no way came off as negative. From my - admittedly limited - view you're an excellent business man but first and foremost a decent guy who loves Rovers.

I hope my truck treats you and/or the next owner well.

Doug
