Oporto hmm There was a guy from there who posted a vehicle for sale here. One of those vehicles you could never import into North America. Can't find the thread now but he was associated with Riverhouse mike.

I'm not trying to buy a new defender, I was just trying to figure out if he is legit. He has other parts that should be legal to import. I can't afford to spend a chunk of change and get bamboozled.

I've exchanged emails with him and he's answered all of my questions, but I have not bought anything from him. I purchased a bodyshell basically identical to that one on ebay from a guy in the UK and there were no issues with importing it, it's just a pile of body parts.

It's Rui Alvez, he's a good dude (I've had some email and phone conversations with him years ago) and is very active in the Portugal Rover community. I have his email and phone number somewhere if you need it, just pm me.

That's good to hear. He doesn't seem fishy, but I thought I would ask around. You never know.
