blunderbuss2
(127 items)

1995 postcard of Hurricane Luis from satellite & below picture of it under all the fluffy white at 150 mph.. Then a lucky guy as approx. 1,000 boats were lost & over 800 lives(grossly contrary to news releases of "2").
Sorry about the last pic. but the lettering on the hub-cap is raised white on white & no angle could get it. It is 1 of the Land Rovers the gendarmes got & reads DEFENDER. Obviously the French are trying to learn English by labeling the parts of their vehicles. Tried to explain to them that,"that ain't de fender but de spar tyre".

    The Landrover Defender, 90 and 110 (long wheelbase) are all due to go out of production soon. Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) in Birmingham UK are finding there is no way to machine build these vehicles and still have to hand-build, and this is too expensive to make a decent profit. So soon there will be no more new Landrover Defenders* around the world...it will all be down to Isuzu Troopers et al.

    *Still...not a bad run for a design from the Wilkes Brothers circa 1948

    I have had experience with Rovers over the years. The aluminium bodies are great but the engines leave something to be desired & the old models had a door latch that rattled to distraction.
