    I gotta say, I'm not sure which one I want...

    90 - Cool, super cabable off-road but really not that much space inside:

    110 - Much more practical, nearly as capable off-road.. just not quite so cool

    110 crew cab could be the best of both worlds... or the worst...

    Decisions, decisions :scratch :D

    If 2/3 seats are enough for you, I'd strongly recommend a 110 HCPU or a 110 Hardtop. The HCPU has a 2meter bed and 1.5t payload.

    I had a 110HT. I loved it.

    My favourite video:

    As if I needed anything further to fuel my lust for a 130, I came across this today.
    Nice people with a great truck.

    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! :D

    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 :evil

    [​IMG]

    Or how steep a hill we could go down :wink:

    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!
