If he'd take a first born in trade, I'll talk to my wife and see if we can't start working towards a payment.

The IDF is now using armoured 110s and has been using hummers for a while.

As much as I love landies, in direct comparison the truth is the Hummer can go places the Landie can't.

It is all about the wheels being the most forward part.

And bigger.



That being said try getting the Hummer down an alley!

Are you asking about why Americans can't buy Defenders? I think it's due to the fact that every new car is required to have an airbag... There's a great deal of talk about the law coming in to force in Europe and that it will require a fundamentally new Defender. I think the law comes in to force around 2013.

Here's where the lust really started - doing the Land Rover Experience at Eastnor Castle, and this was the landy we did it in. I honestly think Mavette would trade me in for one!



I wonder how far she can get a Landy to lean over



Or how steep a hill we could go down



The new ones with Traction Control and anti-stall are unstoppable even in the most novice of hands with the most basic tyres. Check out the tyres in the first pic - essentially road rubber!

I believe that guy is based out of Salt Lake City, Utah.

He posts over at Pirate4x4 in the LR section. He has a couple gorgeous Defenders, including a 110 that he stuck a 350 motor in.

He runs a photo-tour business.

I've seen old MoD Rovers go for cheap in the back of UK-based Land Rover mags.

"Cheap" meaning like 4-8k pounds
