Land Rover Defender 110August 28, 2018
This British beast is a welcome addition to ‘Spotted‘.
The mighty Land Rover Defender.
I spotted this in a supermarket car park. As ever, my mobile flew out of my back pocket and began snapping photos. Almost by itself.
The very first Land Rover appeared in 1948 and the last one made was in January 2016. They were produced in Solihull, England.
As we know, Land Rovers were unique (in bad ways as well as good!) but they were hugely popular
I personally never got bitten by the rugged motoring or off-roading bug. Yes, I drive a Yeti, but it is comfortable to drive. The doors do not let in drafts. The floor is never a pond. The engine does not leak liquids.
And my Yeti doesn’t guzzle fuel like there’s no tomorrow
But, enough. The Land Rover is cool. And I like ’em. Just not to own.
This one is especially nice I think.
See the Union Jack on the wing? This is the Czech Republic and that’s a LHD Land Rover with a Czech plate!
I have no further information on this Land Rover because so many variations were produced, including engine variants, that I cannot pinpoint this exact model. Maybe you can?
So let’s just admire this beautiful beast and say no more
psst… photo below, on the left, my Yeti watches me take pictures of the Land Rover.
If I spot an interesting machine somewhere I get out my mobile phone and take a few photos.
Then I feature it here in ‘Spotted‘.
And I am always keen to hear about your interesting car, motorbike or scooter.
