    Hi all- I just purchased a restored 1984 right hand drive 2.25 liter gasoline powered Defender. Couple of questions.. 1) In 1984 was it actually called a Ninety instead of Defender 90? 2) - I'm looking for a roof rack - I like the look and will not use it to haul things. Do aluminum ones...

    Just bought a 94 D90. Drooled over them for 10 years now, so about time I got with the program. Also own a short wheelbase Mercedes G series (1981 turbodiesel) which frankly is probably a slightly better all-round vehicle, just nowhere near the cool factor of the D90. Now for the question...

    OK, just got home with the new baby (White '94 ST #601) and I noticed some curious things on the 1000 mile trip. For about the first 600 miles, whenever I would stop I'd notice a pool of coolant underneath. Looks like it's coming from the expansion tank, but it was hard to tell if it was the...
