Not understanding the FUN in ownership with all of that!

You need to reevaluate your passion with LR....just sayin...

No evaluation needed, it takes the pressure off. I know my daily driver is going to start every time. If my Rover is laid up for a day, week or a month I'm not riding the bus to work. If it starts, I take it and leave the Yota in the garage. The passion is not giving up and ditching the Rover for a Toyota.

maybe not a defender but an early 110 county for sure! Has never let me down ever and the 3.5l v8 jet engine under the hood with a massive 113hp does actually keep up with traffic. The best feeling ever is passing everyone who overtook you during acceleration. Also, the early springs were from the classic range rover and is actually taller than a standard defender. Just saying....

P.S. Congrats on the disco!
