Naah... I sincerely hope the Injuns'll collect all the old tooling and start up production of the Series three motors at home.... I'd buy another Landrover then. The level of reliability and quality can only improve....

How did you know the V24 was in Torquay??
Yes, it will be perfect to tow the V24 - also for towing the lump of junk called the bladerunner...

It is the new Defender XS with (quote) all the extras. (end quote ) For a defender, all the extras read like a 'standard' list for most other cars... You get ELECTRIC WINDOWS! Whooooo. ABS wheeeee, ETC hahoooo, and TOW BAR, Leather seats...... AIR CONDITIONING!!!!!!

The registration came through yesterday, I got the actual vehicle last week...

Look What I bought to tow my boat to the Thames Trash!

Unfortunately, gear box on boat still having open heart surgery, and the weather forced the race to be stopped.

However The "Landy" is 1986 and has had a full ground up rebuild last year and im still running the engine in!

Stats for the "Landy" are : 0 - 60MPH - 3 weeks
: 2500cc deisel turbo intercooled
: Tow Bar Fitted !
: Dog Guard Fitted
: 7 Wheels (Inc Spare, Flyweel, and Steering Wheel)

I bought it for the wife of course to use in her Dog Training Business
