Tell me you've never wanted to get your girl one.
Nope, but I bought myself one.
Land Rover Discovery holds the tile "Most capable 4X4 never to go 4X4ing".
Bollocks! The Disco is THE car to go off road in (apart from the Defender, obviously)
If you live in rural or outback Australia you won't find any, you will find loads of Toyota's, Nissan's and mitsubishi's. And there is a reason for that! 1) It's rough country, no point spending mega bucks on European made 4×4's when a Jap made truck is tough, cheap and WILL cop loads of damage. 2) European 4×4's & American Jeeps just don't have the room to pack the amount of gear required to embark on a outback trip. They are usually a minimum of a 3 week run, you need loads of gear, Jap 4X4's and ute's (pickups) have double to triple the room. Jap 4×4's can also be modified with after market gear more then any other type. Standard 4X4s will not survive an outback trip simple as that.
A Freelander, several Evoques, some Land Rovers, lots of Range Rovers, do not see any Land Rover Discoverys in this post?
Let me re-phrase! Land Rover holds the tile "Most capable 4X4 never to go 4X4ing".
These modern kitchens don't look all that functional.
You can keep the chick over in Europe, but PLEASE, LAND ROVER…. would you bring the Defender back stateside?
A Defender buyer if it happens!
Count me in, it makes no sense!!!
#23 ok for me
Somehow I don't think #17 belongs in this lineup. Call me old fashioned…
#37 & #38 Want the driver and the defender!
best two pics in the whole post!
Yeah, the Land Rover has got nuthin on the Toyota Land Cruiser. Tough as nails and worth every penny. The LR is an over priced trailer queen, 4×4 wannabe.
I've read some shite in my time, but that's the best. That Jap rubbish wishes it could do the things a Landy can do. Check out the Camel Trophy. Pfffft, Land Cruiser my arse…
#3 #33 FTW!! :-)
If you ever need to find a Gas Station or a Mechanic….just follow a 'Rover, they'll be heading for one in a few minutes.
Operative term here. Spoiled.
#38 FIND HER!
