Longwood Motors RN-67

Every object has a story it seems, and some just happen to be better than others. A few years ago I was looking for a truck to drive back and forth to my local coffee shop from my home office. I found a 90 Classic on craigslist and drove over to the address provided. The […]

E. Wolff, 1984 Defender 90

I picked up this 1984 UK right hand drive Land Rover Defender 90 from a guy who raced Honda side car motorcycles on the west coast of England. While driving it home I had to pause and take a break and literally stumbled upon Stonehenge and snapped a pic of “Beatrice” with the rock formation […]

D. Johnson, Series IIA 88″

The photo above is my wife and I at the Nogales/MX boarder crossing. We bought our 88″ Series IIA in Nicaragua and drove it up to Oregon. That truck is desperately in need of restoration…and I hope to start this winter. – D. Johnson

J. O’Dea, 1972 Series III

I had a bunch of Series trucks back in the day and completed several trips with the LROA back when it was still around. We have recently relocated from Maine to Colorado and thinking about getting another Rover. Currently we’re spending our time exploring the Southwest, albeit in a modified 4Runner. The pic above is […]

A. Gabaldon, 1995 Defender 90

Owning a 1995 D90 was a dream that I reached at a later stage of my life. But before this happened, I recall many years ago, back in 1995 to be exact, when these defenders were brand new at the Land Rover dealer. I was ready to purchase one for myself, but it was not […]

E. Wolff, 1987 Defender 110

We traded our 2002 German spec left hand drive Defender for this 1987 UK right hand drive so we could import a Defender from Germany to the USA. I drove one from Germany to the UK and then drove back this 1987 one. We have worked for the Army overseas since 1999 and figured why […]

British Invasion 2015

HMR 1 - MP

The British Invasion was held this past weekend in Stowe, VT. The total number of British cars exceeded 600, with a nice turnout of Series Land Rovers, Defenders, Range Rovers and Discoverys from all over the Northeast USA and Canada. I really appreciated seeing the Land Rovers on the field – they attracted all the […]

N. Salazar, 1969 & 1970 Series IIA

I am a Peruvian citizen living in US and own two LR Station Wagon Series IIA from 1969 and 1970. My father, who passed away when I was 12, had 5 LR’s of various kinds and a business to bring American tourist to “hard to get places” in the Andes of Southern Peru; when he […]

R. Winkelmann, 1986 Defender 90

I picked up this 1986 Defender 90 just about a year ago. This one is unique in that it is a right side drive that was imported two years ago. This Defender has taught me how to take life little slower. I don’t know if that’s due to the 2.5 NA diesel or just a […]
